Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE)Mandatory
Output-based scheme with no minimum hours
Members must demonstrate activity in at least 3 of these 5 areas: work-based learning, professional activity, formal/educational, self-directed learning, other (eg voluntary work).
IChemE expects all members to identify and undertake appropriate CPD and the responsibility
for this lies with the member. The exact nature of the CPD undertaken should be based upon the
individual member’s circumstances, current membership grade and registrations held
Providing evidence of CPD is already required for some registrations (e.g. CSci) and by other PEIs and as some of you may be aware the latest update of UK-SPEC requires all PEIs to undertake this auditing exercise. From 2017, IChemE (in line with Engineering Council requirements) will be checking a random sample of Chartered Members and Fellows’ CPD records annually.
