There are five generic areas of competence and commitment for all registrants, which broadly cover:
A – Knowledge and understanding
B – Design and development of processes, systems, services and products
C – Responsibility, management or leadership
D – Communication and inter-personal skills
E – Professional commitment
The areas above are set out separately for each title and constitute the threshold generic standards. To assist potential registrants, their advisers and professional review interviewers in deciding which title an individual should apply for, a matrix comparing the requirements for all three titles is also included in UK-SPEC.
Since its introduction in 2003, UK-SPEC has become well respected and recognised globally. It was most recently reviewed and updated in 2013, with the third edition published in January 2014. A public consultation on our Standards is currently in progress, for which the deadline is 2 August 2019.
