The SiLC Register scheme was launched by the Urban Task Force in 1999, to recognise the skills of those working in the broader land condition sector. A registered SiLC is a senior practitioner who has a broad awareness, knowledge and understanding of land condition issues, providing impartial and professional advice in their field of expertise. Entry to SiLC is gained through examination, which is held bi-annually.
The SiLC Register brings together professionals from a broad range of backgrounds who advise on land condition matters, and is run and administered by a Professional and Technical Panel (PTP) which comprises representatives from the supporting professional bodies. The PTP develops and implements the registration process and is the ruling committee for individual registrations. SiLC is administered by Forum Court Associates.
