Professional Review cycle

IChemE works to a schedule for the Stage 3: Professional Review process.

To be included in a cycle, candidates are required to submit and pay for their application, in full, by the submission deadline outlined below, please read the Stage 3 guidance carefully for what this entails, as any post-submission changes or revisions will require candidates to take action within strict time limits.

Candidates will be assigned an interview date and time according to the availability of the volunteer Professional Reviewers, therefore it is very important that candidates make themselves available during the relevant interview period. The decision of the Virtual Election Panel is usually communicated within two days of the panel meeting.
