About IChemE
The Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) is the global professional membership organisation for people with relevant experience or an interest in chemical engineering. We are the only organisation to award Chartered Chemical Engineer status and Professional Process Safety Engineer.
We are also licensed to award the titles of Chartered Engineer (CEng), Chartered Scientist (CSi) and Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) to suitably qualified members. Founded in 1922 as a professional institution for chemical and process engineers, IChemE has grown to its current status of over 40,000 members across 120 countries with Malaysia and Australia home to IChemE’s second and third largest national clusters of members respectively.

The IChemE Safety Centre
The IChemE Safety Centre (ISC) was established in 2013 as a dedicated global initiative to establish a coordinated approached towards influencing government and policy on improving process safety in industry. 
The ISC works with industry partners and regulators to help understand the priorities and challenges of process safety. The industry partnerships also provides a unique and rare opportunity to exchange knowledge and learning across differing industries.
The Centre is a subscription based industry-led consortium operating out of Melbourne, Australia and is governed by an advisory board.

Professional Process Safety Engineer
Despite industry’s best efforts to mitigate major incidents and loss – accidents still occur. Identifying that there was a shortage of professionals who were suitably skilled across all aspects of process safety, led to the establishment of a new international process safety engineering registration - Professional Process Safety Engineer. 
The aim of the registration is to help raise the standards of process safety management worldwide and provide process safety professionals with a recognised international qualification, similar to that of a Chartered Engineer – the ‘gold standard’ for chemical and process engineers.

Welcome from APCChE President

Dear Directors and Board Members,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Professor Guohua Chen, APCChE President 2015 - 2017 for his hard work, dedication and commitment and congratulate him on a successful APCChE Congress in Hong Kong.

It was a pleasure to welcome you to the APCChE Board Meeting in Hong Kong on Thursday 24 August 2017. I hope that you made the most of the opportunity to connect with your fellow Confederation members.

We covered some important matters at the Board Meeting with outcomes that will benefit the future direction of the Confederation and focus our attention on achieving a broader participation by all members, maybe even enticing new members. I thank you all for your considerable contribution to the discussion and I look forward to continuing the strengthening of APCChE at our next Board Meeting. The Minutes of the Board Meeting have been prepared and will be available on the website, via our Members Login section shortly. Please make yourself familiar with these Minutes, especially if you were unable to join us at the Board Meeting. Any feedback or comments on matters reported will be welcome.

The next APCChE 2018 Board Meeting 2018 will be announced son,

The 18th APCChE Congress will be hosted in Sapporo, Japan 23 - 27 September 2019. As the host of the Congress I expect many chemical engineers and allied scientist will gather there.

Your continued support is important to the future success of APCChE and I thank you all for your contributions to date.



Professor Shuichi Yamamoto

President APCChE
