News From the UK Society of Environmental Engineers


The SEE Moves its Headquarters to London

After over 40 years in Buntingford Hertfordshire, Owles Hall and the Manor House, the Society of Environmental Engineers (SEE) has moved its headquarters to London. The move was instigated by the retirement of Jill Waite who was the SEE secretariat for much of that time. The new address of the SEE is;

The Society of Environmental Engineers,
22 Greencoat Lane,
London,
SW1P 1PR

The new SEE secretariat is Diana Kharchenko and can be contacted at secretariat@environmental.org.uk

Membership and Registration queries (concerning either Engineering Council, Society of the Environment or FEANI registration) can be sent to membership@environmental.org.uk

The SEE becomes a Constituent Body of the Society for the Environment

The UK Society of Environmental Engineers (SEE) has become a Constituent Body of the Society for the Environment. This allows, the SEE the ability to enrol suitably qualified Members of the Society as Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv).

The Society for the Environment (SocEnv) is the leading United Kingdom co-ordinating body in environmental matters and is a champion of a sustainable environment.

The Society for the Environment was formed in 2000 and granted a Royal Charter in 2004. The qualification of Chartered Environmentalist is a high level professional qualification available to environmental practitioners. It demonstrates high standards of professional practice, knowledge, competence and engagement, and is recognised by employers as the test of professionalism in sustainable and environmental management. Chartered Environmentalists work in many sectors and are leading in managing environmental assets and they are playing an important part in the goal of a sustainable world.

Candidates for registration as Chartered Environmentalist initially need to complete an application form that will provide evidence of:

  • At least the required minimum total of 12 points of knowledge.
  • At least 4 years of relevant work based practice as part of the 12 base points.
  • A commitment to Continued Professional Development (CPD) and the Society for the Environment Code of Ethics.
  • A personal statement illustrating the candidate's competence including a CV containing relevant employment history.

Candidates for registration as Chartered Environmentalist are also normally required to undergo a one hour Professional Review Interview to demonstrate evidence of their competency.

Further information along with the Chartered Environmentalist Specification and an application form can be found at www.environmental.org.uk

The ability of the UK Society of Environmental Engineers to submit suitably qualified members of the Society as Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) is in addition to the existing licences held with the UK Engineering Council. These existing licences allow the SEE to submit suitably qualified members of the Society to three profession engineering registers maintained and regulated by the Engineering Council. Those three registers are for Chartered Engineer (CEng), Incorporated Engineer (IEng) and Engineering Technician (Eng Tech). The Engineering Council is the regulatory body for the UK engineering profession which sets and maintains internationally recognised standards of professional engineering competence and commitment. In addition the SEE can, via the UK Engineering Council, submit suitably qualified members of the Society to FEANI for EUR ING registration. FEANI is the European Federation of National Engineering Associations.
