Mastership in Chemical Analysis (MChemA)

The RSC awards the Mastership in Chemical Analysis (MChemA) which is the statutory qualification for practice as a Public Analyst and Agriculture Analyst.

The RSC works closely with the Association of Public Analysts (APA) and its Training Committee to ensure that candidates have the appropriate skills and knowledge to qualify. 

In view of the broad scope of the responsibilities of the Public Analyst, candidates for the MChemA should have adequate experience in a laboratory such as a Public Analyst's laboratory, or other laboratory concerned with relevant food, environment and agricultural analysis.
