Professional Standards in the Waste and Resources Sector

CIWM is committed to promoting professional standards in the waste and resources sector and supporting organisations and individuals to understand the skills and competencies required to be a professional at all career levels. 

As the professional body in the sector CIWM have established the competencies required to be a Chartered Waste Manager and support individuals to work towards these through a programme of structured learning and development. 

In Spring 2019 these competencies will be extended to create the CIWM Framework of Professional Standards. Working with other professional bodies and a variety of organisations in the sector CIWM will create a framework that provides a complete map of the competencies required in the sector. 

To register your interest in staying up to date with the development of the framework please email
