The status will be awarded to CIPR members who can show an outstanding level of professional practice and knowledge, and a commitment to continuous professional development.

The CIPR is inviting members to register their interest in applying and to submit any comments regarding the assessment criteria by 26 September. Formal applications will then be invited from early 2009, with the first awards expected to be made in the autumn.

‘We aim not only to make Chartered Practitioner status the benchmark for those working at a senior level, but a standard which all PR practitioners will strive to reach,' said CIPR director and chair of the CIPR education and professional policy committee Jay O'Connor.
