Why a Chartered Body?

Across the professional landscape, from accountants to civil engineers, and of course through to banking, financial advice and insurance, being a qualified member of a Chartered body is an indicator of high standards of competence, knowledge and ethical behaviour.

Membership of a Chartered body means that an individual or organisation has committed to:


Who is involved?

"This alliance is all about inspiring public confidence and trust in the power of professional standards.

Alan Vallance
Former Chief Executive at CII

"We are delighted to be one of the three core participating professional bodies in this important initiative. We want the consumers to be reassured when they interact with a member of a Chartered body and recognise that these individuals have the right knowledge and skills and adhere to the highest standards of integrity. Chartered or Certified designations possessed by Alliance members are a mark of authenticity, quality, reliability and trust."
