The twelve professional attributes against which a Candidate's performance is judged
All candidates for Chartered Chemist have to be a Member (MRSC) or Fellow (FRSC)
The RSC has for some years been successfully accrediting company training schemes.
The requirements for holding Chartered status include a commitment to continuing professional development, and maintaining CChem status is therefore subject to annual revalidation. In most cases this takes the form of a simple declaration as part of RSC membership renewal, but members may be asked to provide supporting information about continuing professional development as part of a random sampling exercise.
