Registered Scientist

The Registered Scientist (RSci) award provides recognition of the important scientific and higher technical roles found across all aspects of the food sector.

The award of RSci is based on a combination of knowledge, competence and commitment to high standards of professionalism.  This registration not only provides recognition but can also be used as a springboard to future recognition as a Chartered Scientist (CSci).

Whilst registrants may not have the term ‘scientist’ within their job title, there are various roles within the food sector such as new product development, food safety, food analysis, product quality and food production that can lead to being awarded RSci.

Once registered, you must maintain your registration by meeting continuing professional development (CPD) requirements each year.
