Chartered Scientist (Csci) is a professional registration that recognises a high level of skill and experience. It is based on broad scientific competencies, providing recognition within regulatory affairs and parity with other scientific professionals working in the development of medicines and medical devices. This recognition for your professional practice and experience thus complements the academic qualifications you have.

What our CSci members say
“My 30 years in regulatory affairs have allowed me to work with many exceptional and talented regulatory specialists, and I am honoured to be one of the first to be recognised professionally as a chartered scientist. I look forward to being joined by many others.”
– Lorna Griffin, CSci, MTOPRA
“As a regulatory affairs professional, I deal with complex issues and need to communicate their conclusions to a range of audiences. This can involve a combination of originality of thought for novel products in development and problem solving of interrelated and sometimes conflicting regulatory requirements. I am delighted that the designation chartered scientist recognises my level of understanding and competence in this field.”
– Antonia Orsi, CSci, MTOPRA
“I first became aware of the chartered scientist status for regulatory specialists at the 2017 TOPRA annual symposium during one of the career workshops. The application journey has allowed me to reflect on my work-based, self-learning and continuing professional development activities over the years, and how valuable they were. I would encourage fellow colleagues and those planning to start a career in regulatory affairs to consider aiming for this prestigious status. Many thanks to my mentors and colleagues who have supported me over the years.”
– Mojisola Ajeneye, CSci, MTOPRA
“I’ve been working in regulatory affairs for over 12 years and have gained experience in many different areas. Being approved as a Chartered Scientist recognises my knowledge and experience in regulatory affairs and I am very proud to be one of the first few regulatory affairs professionals to be awarded this distinctive accreditation.”
– Becky Willoughby, CSci, MTOPRA
