Recognition of EHOs qualified in the Republic of Ireland

In 2014, we signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) based on principles of co-operation and mutual benefit. The MoU encompasses collaboration on research, the exchange of academic materials and the mutual recognition of awards.

The MoU (supplementary) stipulates that a DIT graduate may seek registration with the Environmental Health Registration Board (EHRB). Full recognition (represented by a full EHRB certificate of registration) will be awarded to a DIT graduate who gained the BSc. Environmental Health award in, or after, June 2012.

In addition to this, we will honour the previous accord between the parties which ended in 2008. That agreement stated that a person who commenced the DIT environmental health degree between 2001 and 2007 and successfully completed the course of study, would be entitled to register with the EHRB and obtain a full certificate of registration.

Anyone that commenced their studies before 2001 will be assessed in line with the Directive 2005/36/EC and will find more information on the process for recognition here.


To apply for the EHRB certificate of registration, please use form IRL_1. Applicants must supply evidence of completing the course and provide evidence of establishment to work as an EHP. The EHRB registration fee is £210.

Previously issued EHRB certificates

Anyone issued with a restricted EHRB certificate of registration but meets the relevant criteria is eligible to apply for a full certificate. Please use form IRL_2 and ensure the existing certificate is returned.

The fee for re-issue of a certificate is £45. Anyone with a restricted EHRB certificate of registration does not have to re-register with the board.
