  • Public recognition of scientific qualifications.
  • Acknowledgement of participation in continuing professional development (CPD) and education.
  • Increased professional credibility and prestige of scientists and technicians in the industry.
  • Potential to provide further educational and CPD opportunities for scientists and technicians.
