The CIPR's Royal Charter includes the power to grant the status of Chartered Public Relations Practitioner to individuals who meet the required standard of professional distinction.

Just as chartered status is the norm in other professions, it is our mission to build a chartered public relations profession. We already have hundreds of Chartered PR Practitioners and each year we award chartered status to many more.

Chartered status represents the highest standard of professional excellence and integrity. As well as reflecting your breadth of experience and achievements, it shows that you keep pace in a fast-moving profession, updating your knowledge and skills through CPD.

Benefits of becoming chartered

Demonstrate to your peers that you have met the rigorous criteria set out for chartered status.
Enjoy greater influence within your organisation and in the profession.
Gain a professional competitive edge and enhance your career prospects.
Reassure prospective employers and clients that you practise to the highest standards.
Chartered Public Relations Practitioners are entitled to use the designation Chart.PR and a supporting logo

Why Chartership matters

Karen Floyd Chart.PR FCIPR tells us why Chartership was important to her.


“Chartership allows me to command greater respect at Board level and reassures my clients that they are receiving high-quality advice from a true professional.”
