• Institute of Measurement and Control become Licensed Body


We are pleased to announce that the Institute of Measurement and Control (InstMC) has become our 25th Licensed Body. 

`The Institute of Measurement and Control is committed to promoting professional excellence at all levels in the automation, instrumentation, control and related industries.  In keeping with this, individual members are welcome to apply for membership of the Institute and, in doing so, to seek professional qualifications of international standing. Companies are invited to join the Institute’s Companion Company Scheme and, by sharing in a long-standing hallmark of quality and integrity, so enhance their business profiles. Key InstMC services, principally concerned with the exchange of knowledge and innovation in measurement and control, include publications on relevant technical and specialist subjects, a technical on-line library and conferences and symposia.` 

The InstMC's Chief Executive and Secretary, Peter Martindale commented "‘InstMC welcomes the opportunity to become directly involved with the UK’s professional science community."

Increasing the number of licensed professional bodies is fundamental to ensure the highest levels of professionalism and competence across the scientific community. With the Mineralogical Society and the Association of Neurophysiological Scientists soon to begin awarding CSci, and interest in obtaining a licence shown from the Society of Biology, it is pleasing that more and more professional bodies are contributing to the expansion of the CSci register.
