The Specialist in Land Condition (SiLC) Register scheme was designed to support the use of the Land Condition Record (LCR), launched by the Urban Task Force in 1999 and to recognise the skills of those working in the broader land condition sector. It now provides a wider recognition of competence in the land condition field, but the LCR remains as a working tool.
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. A SiLC is able to verify the accuracy of a completed LCR. 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.
The SiLC Register 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.
