Chartered Chemist (CChem) is a chartered status awarded by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) in the United Kingdom and by the Royal Australian Chemical Institute (RACI) in Australia.

Achieving chartered status in any profession denotes to the wider community a high level of specialised subject knowledge and professional competence. The award of the Chartered Chemist (CChem) designation recognises the experienced practising chemist who has demonstrated an in-depth knowledge of chemistry, significant personal achievements based upon chemistry, professionalism in the workplace and a commitment to maintaining technical expertise through continuing professional development.

In the United Kingdom, CChem candidates must meet the following requirements:

  • Be a Member or a Fellow of the RSC;
  • Hold a degree accredited by the RSC (or equivalent);
  • Show that the chemical knowledge and skills acquired from their education and training are essential for fulfilling the needs of their job;
  • Demonstrate development of twelve Professional Attributes.

In Australia, the requirements are broadly the same as above.
