The Forensic Anthropology Committee of the RAI, in partnership with the British Association for Forensic Anthropology, has established a certified examination process for UK practitioners in forensic anthropology. This was achieved through extensive consultation with a variety of disciplines, associations, professional bodies and practitioners, and with the full support of the Office of the Forensic Science Regulator. The certification process provides a transparent and robust professional career structure for those who wish to practise the discipline within the United Kingdom.

Included within this process was an agreed curriculum upon which examinations would be based. After representations from a number of Universities to seek mapping of course curricula onto the RAI Forensic Anthropology curriculum, the RAI Council has agreed to offer a capability whereby Universities will be permitted to advertise that their course meets selected RAI curriculum content, following the issue of a certificate to that effect.
