Professional Standards Panels

Chartered Engineer, Chartered Physicist and Fellowship are all peer assessed qualifications.

The IOP's Council delegates authority for making the assessments to panels of members who hold the relevant designation, and the authority for setting the assessment regulations and processes to the Professional Standards Committee of the Membership Committee (regulations for Chartered Engineer are set by the Engineering Council).  Committee and panel members are all volunteers (elected, in the case of the Chair of the Membership Committee, who is the Vice-President, Membership).

The Committees meet three times a year.  Panels take place virtually, and members would be involved in any number of panels from one to 20 a year. Panel members also meet annually to undertake application benchmarking. If you are a CPhys, CEng or Fellow and you would be interested in becoming a panel member, please email  

If you would like to support others more directly with their development, why not become a mentor? More information.
