Professional Registration Partnership with Environment Agency

The Institute of Science and Technology has launched a brand new partnership with the UK Environment Agency. Technical staff working as part of the Agency’s National Laboratory Service (NLS) will now be able to join one of the Science Council’s professional registers through the IST.

Following a recent launch event Terry Croft (IST Chair) said: "The Environment Agency’s labs are staffed by experts in environmental science and technology, so it’s a real honour to be able to aid their professional development by supporting them through the professional registration process".

What is the IST – Institute of Science & Technology?

The Institute of Science & Technology is the professional body for specialist, technical and managerial staff. Whilst we have been serving our members for over 50 years, our aim is to continually move forward and expand our horizons so that we can best position ourselves to support our members and their needs within the ever-changing and challenging 21st century.

We reach out to provide focused, professional support to a wide group of specialist, technical, and managerial colleagues in a broad range of environments such as science, engineering, arts, industry, local authorities, schools, FE, HE, research/analytical/health facilities, government departments and many more in the UK and overseas.
