You are eligible to become a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (FRSC) if you’ve been more than five years in a senior position, and your efforts have made an impact in any field of the chemical sciences.
I regard being a Fellow as recognition by the membership and officers of the Royal Society of Chemistry that I have attained a high professional standing not just within chemistry but also to the wider community.
Clearly demonstrate the depth of experience and strategic input you provide your organisation by using the letters FRSC, and use them to best effect with our help.
Expedited route to chartered status
Use your existing achievements and career history as a springboard for gaining chartered status. Demonstrate your excellence in the practice of chemical science through CChem, CSci, CEnv and CMgr, and get support embedding the CChem accreditation framework at your company.
