Accredited registers

Pouring pills

Both statutory and the accredited registers for professions that are not required to be regulated by law are managed by a number of professional regulators. Both can offer significant benefits in helping to protect patients and the public. Each regulator has their own system, standards and register with detailed processes of how to alert them if you have concerns about an individual's fitness to practice.

This section more specifically focuses on the accredited registers, what they do, and, the value of encouraging your staff to join one where available to them.

Encouraging individuals to join an accredited register 

While it is not compulsory for unregulated practitioners to go on an accredited register, employers may wish to consider profiling the benefits of being part of an accredited register as part of their recruitment process because of the added levels of assurances it can bring.

Where requiring individuals to be part of an accredited register, employers must ensure that job adverts and personal specifications are updated to include reference to all the registers that are relevant to that profession to ensure they do not inadvertently restrict or prevent individuals from being considered for the role.
