Forensic Archaeology Expert Panel

A unique feature of the Forensic Archaeology SIG, FAEP is a sub-group of the special interest group and comprises an expert panel of forensic practitioners. This sub-group has a closed membership, due to the nature of the work, and is only open to practising forensic archaeologists.

The aims of the expert panel are;

  • to implement mechanisms for accrediting and/or regulating the work of those acting or seeking to act as expert witnesses
  • to consider and discuss issues arising in the course of such work to liaise with Her Majesty’s Government, the Forensic Science Regulator and any other relevant bodes or individuals with regard to such issues

Joining the Expert Panel

Membership of the Expert Panel is open to all practising forensic archaeologists who are members of CIfA at Member level (MCIfA) and who demonstrate competence against CIfA’s forensic archaeology competency matrix. We advise all applicants to carefully read the membership criteria and the competency matrix prior to making an application.

You can find the application form, membership criteria and the competency matrix on the documents list below. To find out more about joining CIfA, you can go to the main CIfA joining pages.
