The Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) require the appointment of a second external examiner for the programmes they accredit. This external examiner must be in the building profession/industry.

The Nursing, Midwifery and Veterinary Nursing PSRBs require evidence as part of their annual reviews that external examiners have engaged with the provision and that the external examiner contracts and renumeration are commensurate with their role. 

External examiners appointed to NMC (Nursing and Midwifery Council) approved programmes require confirmation that the appointee is on the NMC Register. ​​
