About the JCCP - Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners
The Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners (JCCP) was established in January 2016, following the publication of the final HEE Report on ‘Implementation of qualification requirements for cosmetic procedures: Non-surgical cosmetic interventions and hair restoration surgery' that was published in November 2015. As the newly established body for self-regulation of the non-surgical and hair restoration surgery sectors in England, the JCCP aims to:
Provide information to the public seeking non-surgical and hair restoration surgery treatments.
Maintain a register of accredited practitioners who meet the industry recognised standards for the delivery of non-surgical and hair restoration surgery treatments.
Keep a list of approved education and training providers and qualifications.
The JCCP is a not-for-profit organisation supported by Government, statutory regulatory bodies (GMC, NMC, GDC, GPhC, HCPC) and many industry partners (Education Providers, Pharmaceutical Companies, Pharmacies, Professional Associations and many others).
The areas covered by the activities of the JCCP includes the injection of botulinum toxin and fillers, chemical peels/skin rejuvenation, laser treatments and hair restoration surgery.
The JCCP work very closely with our sister organisation, the CPSA - an expert group of specialists with patient/public representation, committed to safeguarding people - set the Standards that anyone who wishes to perform these treatments must meet, whatever professional background they are from.
Practitioners who meet these Standards will soon be able to join a register run by the Joint Council of Cosmetic Practice. This will let you select a practitioner from the register, knowing they have met the requirements set out in the Standards explained on the CPSA website.
