Royal Society of Biology
Mutual Recognition Agreement with Royal Society of Biology
The College is pleased to announce that a Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA) has been achieved with the Royal Society of Biology (UK). In short, this agreement provides College members in the Registered Professional Biologist (RPBio) category the ability to become registered as a Chartered Biologist (CBiol) with the Society on the strength of their College registration and vice versa. Members of the College who achieve membership in the Royal Society of Biology are also eligible for membership in the European Countries Biologist Association (EurProBiol).
Access to these titles will be of interest to those considering working abroad. Please note that while this agreement will provide title opportunities to College members, this does not replace immigration related permission that may be required to seek employment in other countries.
