Protected Titles

Some professions in the UK are not regulated by law and therefore there is no legislative requirement to be registered with a regulatory body in order to access the profession. However, if you wish, you can apply to hold a Chartered title, professional title or designatory letters in a field linked to your profession. These protected titles are protected by an authority with a Royal Charter. The protected titles do not usually have a reserve of activities, but this should be verified with the appropriate authority.

If you wish to hold one of the protected titles you must apply to the relevant institution. The institution will consider your qualifications and any relevant practical experience. The institution will then determine whether you have sufficient knowledge and experience to meet their requirements.

If you cannot find your profession on this page, you may wish to check the list of regulated professions. You can also contact us for further information.
