Royal Astronomical Society[edit]

Removed Royal Astronomical Society (a learned society, which does not operate as a professional body); added the Geological Society of London (which operates as both a professional body and a learned society). Russ Evans— Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.69.10.132 (talk) 23:10, 26 December 2003 (UTC)

Re-added Royal Astronomical Society, which is the professional body for astronomers and geophysicists in the UK and is recognised as such by the Science Council and HERO.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 192.33.116.9 (talk) 04:56, 14 September 2004 (UTC)

Australian bodies[edit]

Dumb question from an Aussie: what are those two Australian bodies doing there? Australia's not actually still part of Britain, despite what our prime minister might think. --Eric TF Bat 05:56, 21 September 2005 (UTC)

I found 5 Australian bodies in the list and have removed them. For reference they were
--PTSE 23:58, 1 October 2005 (UTC)

Linkfarm[edit]

The external links to the various official websites should be removed per WP:NOT#LINK, WP:EL, & WP:SPAM. --Ronz 16:04, 10 July 2007 (UTC)

Done. --Ronz 03:19, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

Institute of Sound and Communications Engineers[edit]

I would propose to add the Institute of Sound and Communications Engineers to the list. Details are at http:www.isce.org.uk . The Institute, under a different name, was founded in 1948. JMW1937 (talk) 06:54, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done A bit late, but better late than never. It is not on the #Definitive list, so was added under Non-chartered. HairyWombat 18:08, 5 May 2013 (UTC)

Institute of Leadership and Management[edit]

The ILM is listed twice - under chartered and non-chartered. Which is it? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 135.196.14.254 (talk) 15:52, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

I looked on their website, and saw no mention of them being chartered. I have therefore removed them from that section. HairyWombat 02:32, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
Later. Also, it is not on the #Definitive list. HairyWombat 19:36, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

Definitive list[edit]

The UK Privy Council Office has published the definitive list of which bodies have a Royal Charter; it is in the form of an Excel spreadsheet. I have added this to the article; it is currently the sole reference in the entire article. It would be helpful if people consulted this definitive list before making changes to the chartered list. For example, the Institution of Engineering and Technology is not on the list, whereas the Institution of Electrical Engineers is (even though the former is the new name of the latter). HairyWombat 16:27, 1 April 2013 (UTC)

Later. In an e-mail exchange the Privy Council Office have admitted that the omission of The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) from their definitive list was an oversight. I have therefore added as a <ref> the consolidated version of the IET's Charter and Orders published on the IET website. HairyWombat 18:52, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

Even later. The Privy Council Office has released an updated definitive list here. I will update the article. HairyWombat 18:18, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

RINA[edit]

The Royal Institution of Naval Architects should be on the list. [1] Can an editor add that? 129.67.85.145 (talk) 14:47, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done It is on the #Definitive list, so was added under Chartered. HairyWombat 18:46, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

ACT[edit]

ACT moved to Chartered list, ref http://www.treasurers.org/charter — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cressowski (talkcontribs) 07:32, 6 August 2013 (UTC)

It is also on the #Definitive list. HairyWombat 18:59, 6 August 2013 (UTC)
