Consultancy Group

Consultancy Group

The Consultancy Group is one of the Royal Society of Chemistry's many Interest Groups. The Interest Groups are member driven groups which exist to benefit RSC members, and the wider chemical science community, in line with the RSC's strategy and charter.

The Group provides a forum for RSC members who are consultants.  Members may be self-employed, in partnerships or employed by commercial organisations or academia.  Many of the members of the Consultancy Group also act as Expert Witnesses in criminal and/or civil litigation.


  • The Group arranges meetings and workshops to provide networking opportunities and training in aspects of setting up and running a consultancy business.
  • We also give members access to some of the material that has been presented at meetings of the Group.  


All communication with the members of the group is directly by email, MyRSC Consultancy Group or by posting notices on these web pages. If you wish to be contacted directly, and you have not given your current email address to the RSC on the latest Membership Renewal Form, will you please contact the Membership Department.

Would all members of the Consultancy Group please register with MyRSC and sign up for the Consultancy Group.

We are always looking for new committee members who are keen to get involved and to help organise our activities. If you would like to find out more please contact the Secretary.
