A professional body is an organisation with individual members practising a profession in which the organisation maintains an oversight of the knowledge, skills, conduct and practices of that profession. A professional body seeks to further a particular profession, the interests of individuals engaged in that profession and the public interest.
Professional organisations go through a rigorous process to be approved as a professional body and learned society. NEDonBoard became the professional body and learned society for non-executive directors and board members in 2017. The list of approved professional bodies is publicly available on the UK government website.
In the United Kingdom and the Isle of Man the term “institute” is a protected word. Organisations may only use the word if they are “organisations which are carrying out research at the highest level or to professional bodies of the highest standing”. NEDonBoard became the Institute of Board Members in 2020 on its own rights.
