Planned initiative (work in progress):
Since this year, the European organization FENStatS has been awarding an accreditation with the name Accredited European Statistician.
As a national organisation for statistics we would like to join this accreditation.
In order to be accredited as a statistician, a degree (MSc level) in statistics or equivalent and at least five years of professional experience are required.
A mutual recognition with other accreditations such as ASA and RSA is planned.
In order to participate in the accreditation process, firstly, we need a committee of at least three auditors who themselves have an accreditation or equivalent qualification, and secondly, we need a formal decision by the board to join the accreditation.
An application for accreditation should cost 120 euros, with a reduced price of only 60 euros in the first application year (2020).
You will also find further information on the page of FENStatS and the statutes for accreditation can be found here (PDF in English).
