Following a recommendation from the Professional Affairs Committee
(PAC), RSS Council has decided not to renew our license to issue the
title of Chartered Scientist (CSci) in 2019 and will no longer be
accepting new applications for the CSci title.
The PAC and Council took this decision because they want the RSS to
concentrate on our own professional qualifications Graduate Statistician
(GradStat) and Chartered Statistician (CStat), noting that CSci is the
only member category of the RSS where numbers have been in decline.
Current RSS members who hold the CSci title will be entitled to use
it until the end of 2019. At renewal time, membership subscription for
2020 will be for the Chartered Statistician (CStat) fee only. Current
CSci holders will able to ‘transfer’ this title to another CSci licensed
body, but will be required to apply directly with them and meet their
minimum requirements before applying. Licensed bodies are listed here.
