RPS Qualified Person Eligibility Panel of Assessors
The Royal Pharmaceutical Society, the Royal Society of Biology and Royal Society of Chemistry (the Joint Professional Bodies or JPB) are required by the Medicine and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency and the Veterinary Medicines Directorate to certify individuals as eligible for nomination as a QP. Each professional body has a Panel of Assessors, which includes a Chairperson and Vice-Chairperson.
The Assessor's role includes the review of initial written assessments, preparing for interviews and interviewing candidates. The interview panel for each assessment normally involves an assessor from each of the professional bodies (three Assessors).
The RPS Assessors also collaborate with the Royal Pharmaceutical Society to raise awareness on the issues relating to the QP role and in providing support for QPs.
Further details on the role of QP Assessor are included in the RPS QP Eligibility Panel of Assessors - Role and Specification.
Time commitment and remuneration
It is estimated that the total time commitment is 4-6 days per year. This usually includes two days for interviews and two meetings/training days.
RPS QP Assessor vacancies, when available, will be advertised on our QP Assessors page.
