This is a UK-wide statutory body with regulatory powers, established by the Chiropractors Act 1994. It’s purpose is to protect the public by establishing and operating a scheme of statutory regulation for chiropractors, to set the standards of the chiropractic profession, to ensure the development of the profession and to promote chiropractic as contributory to the health of the nation. The GCC Register opened on 15 June 1999. From the 14 June 2001 the title of 'chiropractor' has been protected by law and it is a criminal offence for anyone to describe themselves as a chiropractor (whether expressly or by implication) if not registered with the GCC.

All osteopaths in the UK are regulated by the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC). Osteopaths are required to renew their registration each year and we provide registrants with an annual licence to practise. As part of this process, the GOsC checks that osteopaths have current professional indemnity insurance, remain in good health and of good character, and have met mandatory continuing professional development requirements.
