We are pleased to announce that the AfN Petition for a Royal Charter was presented to the Privy Council and has now proceeded to the next formal stage of the process and public consultation.
On 6th November 2019 our Petition for a Royal Charter was presented to the Privy Council and has now proceeded to the next stage of the process. This is a significant step in the process for being awarded a Royal Charter. The petition has been referred to a committee of the Privy Council for consideration and report. This is the formal part of the process, which means that our petition has also been published today in the London Gazette for public consultation.
If you wish to lend your support to our petition, either as an individual or via an organisational role, you can find the entry in the London Gazette here. Submissions should be sent to:Privy Council Office, Room G/04, 1 Horse Guards Road, London SW1A 2HQ or emailed to email@example.com.The closing date for the consultation is 2 January 2020.If our Petition is successful we will be able to award the title Chartered Nutritionist to Registered Nutritionists. We believe that the public, policy makers and the food and feed industry are best served if they can easily identify nutritionists who are trained to interpret and apply nutrition science to provide services, advice and support, and who are accountable to a regulator which sets standards for their education, training, conduct, practice and CPD. The award of a Charter would be a clear indication to the public that Chartered Nutritionists meet these standards.
