27th October 2020

The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) has published its response to the Government's Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy's (BEIS) consultation on recognition of professional qualifications and regulation of professions.

The CIOB has produced a substantial response to the consultation which covered the current processes for recognising a professional and providing them with Chartered Membership, how it approaches those applying for membership outside of the UK and the importance of mutual recognition.

The consultation response, as well as further policy work undertaken by the CIOB, can be found here.


Eddie Tuttle, Director of Policy, Research & Public Affairs at the CIOB, said:

“Today’s response to the BEIS consultation on recognition of professional qualifications is an important topic as this could have an impact on prospective and current members both here in the UK and internationally. Our Policy and Public Affairs team at the CIOB continue to monitor the political landscape. By responding to consultations, we are adding our voice and our members’ voices to help with policy formation that will have an impact in the built environment.”
