Regulated Professions

There are a number of professions in the UK that are regulated - this means that there is a regulatory requirement to register with a competent authority prior to practising that profession. The competent authority's role is to determine whether an overseas professional has the required skills and competences to be considered suitably qualified to practise in the UK. A UK NARIC Statement of Comparability or Career Path Report may be helpful for your application, but it will be necessary to contact the competent authority directly to determine their requirements.

In the UK, some professional titles are protected by competent authorities. These include Chartered titles, professional titles or designatory letters, which are all protected by authorities holding a Royal Charter. Typically these professions do not have a reserve of activities, but this should be verified with the appropriate competent authority. Individuals may choose to hold corporate membership of a chartered body due to the professional status it confers in their field. The competent authority's role is to determine whether an overseas professional has the required skills and competences to meet the standards for using the protected title.
