How to become a Chartered EHO

The Royal Environmental Health Institute of Scotland is the only organisation in the world which can confer the title ‘Chartered Environmental Health Officer’. Chartered status is the highest possible professional status and recognises an individual’s professional qualifications, training, experience within, and commitment to, environmental health practice.

All members of the Institute who are Environmental Health Officers can achieve and maintain chartered status subject to complying with the Institute’s Scheme of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for a minimum continuous three-year period. In addition, members must also comply with Institute’s regulations governing professional conduct and discipline.

Chartered Environmental Health Officer members may use the post nominal letters Ch.EHO MREHIS or Ch.EHO FREHIS if they are a Fellow of the Institute. 

Chartered status is confirmed annually by issuing a ‘Certificate of Compliance’ to all members who have achieved and maintained Chartered status.


REHIS is a registered charity in Scotland, SC009406
