Latest Policy & Procedure Changes

Changes to the certification scheme, eligibility criteria, policies, etc. will be posted here for your information.

Date Change Description
May 2022 The IOSH Memorandum of Understanding has been put on hold to allow for a review and update of the MOU. Applications submitted under this MOU process will not be eligible to be processed until the review is completed and an updated agreement is in place. This has now been lifted and applications under the MOU are being accepted again (August 2022)
October 2021 Commencing in 2022, BCRSP examination score reports will be changing. Unsuccessful candidates will receive a performance report with a scaled score, and successful candidates will receive a pass notification only (no score). A scaled score is a representation of the total number of correct questions a candidate has answered (raw score) that has been converted to a consistent and standardized scale. More information will be provided on this change to examination candidates in 2022.
