Chartered Environmental Health Practitioner digital credential

We aim to relaunch Chartered Status in February/March 2024, based on feedback from members to our phase two consultation in the summer of 2023. Thank you to all the members who engaged with both phases of the consultation.

Entry to the Chartered Practitioner Programme was closed at the end of 2022. The remaining candidates should complete the programme in 2024.

The Chartered Environmental Health Practitioner Programme is a two-year, practice-based route to Chartered Status and is built on our Professional Standards.

Chartered Environmental Health Practitioners (EHPs) can use the post-nominals 'CEnvH' and a digital credential to formally demonstrate that they have met the required standards.

Food enforcement in England, Wales and Northern Ireland

The Chartered EHP Programme is a flexible professional development pathway that is applicable internationally and in all employment contexts. For this reason, it has been not been directly mapped to the Food Standards Agency's competency framework. Candidates and employers who are interested in food enforcement work in England, Wales and Northern Ireland are asked to consider our Environmental Health Practitioner pathway instead.
