Environmental Health Registration Board

EHRB will formally close in December 2021. From this point, CIEH will take ownership of its Registers, which will be published as a permanent record on this page.

Prior to September 2021, Environmental Health Practitioners (EHPs) and related professionals who qualified in England, Wales and Northern Ireland were Registered with the Environmental Health Registration Board (EHRB).

EHRB will formally close in December 2021. From this point, CIEH will take ownership of its Registers, which will be published as a permanent record on this page.

Practitioners' Registrations with EHRB will remain valid indefinitely, so for this reason there is no requirement for people who are Registered with EHRB to join CIEH’s Professional Registers.

However, we appreciate that some Practitioners may also wish to appear on CIEH's Register and have access to the relevant digital credentials. We have therefore created a simple process to follow to do this: you would need to hold the appropriate grade of CIEH membership, provide up-to-date CPD records, and pay an enrolment fee.

To gain entry to the Environmental Health Practitioner Register, you will need:

  1. To be a Registered EHP with EHRB – Certificate of Registration (degree, etc), Public Health Diploma, Registered Sanitary Inspector or Public Health Inspector
  2. Be a current Member (MCIEH) or Fellow (FCIEH). (Registration is not available for retired members)
  3. Provide 60 hours of CPD records from within the last three years, including certification. (Records uploaded to MyCIEH are fine)
  4. Pay your enrolment fee

To gain entry to the Food Safety Practitioner Register, you will need:

  1. To be Registered with EHRB – Higher Certificate in Food Control
  2. Be a current Associate, Member or Fellow. (Registration is not available for retired members)
  3. Provide 30 hours of food-related CPD records from within the last three years, including certification. (Records uploaded to MyCIEH are fine)
  4. Pay your enrolment fee

The enrolment fee for 2021 is £45.

Please note that ongoing Registration with CIEH is dependent on maintaining membership and CPD at the appropriate levels.
