GUIDE FOR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST
This guidance is written to help you focus on what to include in your application to the Register of Chartered Practitioners in Environmental Cleaning. It also describes the application process.
An Environmental Cleaning Professional who can demonstrate the required competency levels over the prescribed timescales, who passes the background checks or who holds a professional status i.e., professional membership, may apply to be admitted to the Register of Chartered Environmental Cleaning Professionals. This includes those persons who specialise in the delivery of cleaning services, associated services, training/education in the cleaning and associated industries and the Armed Forces, and anyone employed directly in the administration of cleaning standards. These are core requirements for a Chartered Environmental Cleaning Professional
- You will need to demonstrate you adopt a strategic approach. This is not necessarily reliant on holding a directorial position, but there must be clear evidence of your personal contribution.
- Whilst you may be a subject expert in a specific area of cleaning, you will be required to demonstrate a broad knowledge of the industry.
Once admitted, you remain on the Register by:
- Compliance with a Code of Conduct,
- Participation in and confirmation that you comply with the criteria of the Environmental Cleaning Practitioner Continuous Professional Development scheme, and
- Payment of an annual fee.
