Who can become a REnvP?

David Lloyd-Roach, Chair of the Society’s Registration Authority and Director of Qualifications at the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE), explains who should be applying for the REnvP professional registration.


Core environmental professionals, environmental specialists in a different discipline and degree apprentices are all covered.

Why become a REnvP?

By becoming a REnvP, you are highlighting that you have been judged by your peers who have found you to be consistently advancing and advocating good environmental practices.

Global REnvPs have all committed to continuous professional development at a high standard and are united in a collective route towards a more sustainable future.

By becoming a REnvP, you can also begin your journey to Chartership. If you aren’t looking for a route to becoming a CEnv, REnvP can be instrumental in achieving your career goals by enhancing your employability, influence and credibility.

How to apply


The REnvP registration is open to all professionals who have acquired a level of environmental knowledge equivalent to a QCF level 5 qualification (England, Wales, and Northern Ireland) and possess sufficient relevant, practical experience to be able to demonstrate the 12 REnvP competencies.


In order to become a REnvP, you will need to:

– Be a member of a professional body such as IWater

-Complete a REnvP Application Form and supply the required supporting documents

-Produce a copy of your CPD record

-Submit evidence detailing how you meet the REnvP competencies


All of your written evidence should be validated by at least two mentors, sponsors, or supervisors, who will need to confirm the authenticity of the application and that it fairly represents your ability and achievements. Ideally, the mentors, sponsors, or supervisors should be REnvP or CEnv registrants.
