The minimum standards of education and experience that are necessary for registration as a European Ergonomist have been agreed by all members.

  1. The registration process starts  with an assessment by the local assessment board to check conformity with the minimum requirements of CREE. If you wish to gain registration as a European Ergonomist and you fulfil the minimum standards, you should contact the ergonomics society that covers your area, or the CREE representative for your area that can be found on this website (About CREE – CREE Council Members and Representatives). For countries where there is no national ergonomics society or CREE representative, contact should be made with the Secretary General (About CREE – CREE Council Board).
  2. Once applications are approved at local level they are recommended for registration by the CREE council. CREE meetings take place twice per year. At these meetings the final decisions are made.
  3. When registration is approved, a certificate will be issued and the applicants name will appear in the register. The applicants name will then appear on this website (unless the applicant indicates that this is not wanted).

How to apply ?

Interested ergonomists should apply by submitting an application through their national societies’ assessment board (NAB). Generally this can be done in the local language.

When ?

CREE council meetings are held twice each year, generally in June and November. Applications must be received by the national assessment boards approximately three months prior to CREE council meetings. For precise cut-off dates please contact your local NAB.

What are the registration steps?

  1. Collect an application from your national assessment board (NAB).
  2. Complete the application and submit it to the NAB
  3. The NAB assesses all applications twice a year (2 months before CREE meetings)
  4. Registration is granted by the CREE Council if all members agree that the requirements have been met. This is done on the basis of the information supplied by the NAB.
  5. Candidates are informed of CREE decisions by their local NAB
  6. All successful candidates can use the title European Ergonomist (Eur.Erg.) and will receive a Certificate of Registration.


All applicants should demonstrate experience in taking full responsibility for the use and application of ergonomics knowledge and methods in practical situations over a period of at least two years beyond their ergonomics education and supervised training period (generally one year of supervised training is required). The minimum academic qualification requirements for Registration as a European Ergonomist are described in the document Minimum Requirements.
