RECOGNITION OF THE CHEMISTRY PROFESSION

As highlighted in the IYC 2011 declaration, chemistry and chemical sciences are involved in every aspect of life and in almost every thing that we use. In view of its importance in the national development the profession of Chemistry and the professional chemist should be given due recognition by the Governments.

Chemistry and the Chemical Sciences and the profession of Chemistry itself have to be given due recognition by the Governments in view of their importance  in  the national development.

Several countries have already passed legislations to this effect, I understand. As the first step towards recognition, Chemistry professional's certificate should be made mandatory in areas such as quality control.

I would like to invite suggestions on this matter and also assistance in framing regulations from those countries who have already done so. We would also like to have copies of legislation for us to follow, in the drafting of regulations for Sri Lanka.

It is a great thing if  all those countries interested in this matter could achieve the results during the International Year of Chemistry.


Topic: workshops, conferences Audience: general public, scientists, professional chemists, researchers, decision makers
