The General Chiropractic Council (GCC) was set up under the Chiropractors Act 1994. As a statutory body - set up by law - the GCC has three main duties:
- Protecting the public by regulating chiropractors
- Setting the standards of chiropractic education, conduct and practice
- Ensuring the development of the profession
Anybody who calls themselves a chiropractor in the UK must be registered with the GCC, otherwise they are committing a criminal offence.
To register as a chiropractor, an individual has to satisfy the educational requirements for registration and show they are of good health and character
Once an individual is registered as a chiropractor; they must:
- Act in accordance with the Code of Practice and Standard of Proficiency
- Maintain and update their knowledge and skills by undertaking Continuing Professional Development every year
To check if a chiropractor is registered you can look on the GCC website at www.gcc-uk.org and search for a chiropractor by name or location.
