The JCCP Practitioner Register has been established to enable practitioners delivering the aesthetic treatments set out in the CPSA Framework of Standards and Competences to be accredited.
  • In order to be accredited applicants will need to demonstrate evidence of competence and proficiency.
  • The JCCP recognizes that different practitioners will have varying levels of experience, qualifications and status.
  • The public will be able to access the JCCP Practitioner Register and see at what level and which areas of treatment a practitioner has been accredited by the JCCP.

The JCCP Practitioner Register is voluntary and remains subject to consideration for approval by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) who oversee public registers in the health care sector.

The JCCP has been established in order to provide a source of information and guidance for patients/members of the public seeking safe practice in the area of non-surgical cosmetic treatments and hair restoration surgery. Its agreed Mission Statement and Values are set out below

Mission Statement of the JCCP

The Mission Statement for the JCCP and its values are set out below:

‘The Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners (JCCP) and the Cosmetic Practice Standards Authority (CPSA) are recognised self-regulators of the non-surgical aesthetic industry in the United Kingdom and the point of access for the public seeking information about this area of practice and where appropriate for raising concerns about practitioners. The JCCP places public protection and patient safety as the focus of its activities.

JCCP Practitioner Registrants and associated Education and Training Providers will be accredited and endorsed by the JCCP as meeting the highest standards of quality by ensuring that all parties who have been admitted to the JCCP’s Registers have met the agreed industry qualifications, benchmarks and abide by the standards of practice and behaviour as determined by the Cosmetic Industry CPSA and the JCCP’.

Values of the JCCP

  • Upholding Patient Safety and Public Confidence as the core driving force of the JCCP
  • Operating its Register of Practitioners and Education and Training Providers within a strict and agreed Code of Practice that embodies robust ethical standards to providing aesthetic treatments.
  • Openness, fairness and independence.
  • Working in partnership with patients and all key stakeholders in the aesthetic industry.
  • Recognising innovation and best evidenced-based practice and responding to change

Protecting the Public

  • Applying strict standards for entry to the JCCP Register and for continued registration.
  • Approving education and training providers that deliver programmes that meet the standards.
  • Maintaining a register of individuals who successfully complete those programmes and accreditation procedures.
  • Taking action if the standards may not have been met.
  • Establishing clear and simple procedures to enable the public to raise issues of concern about the professional practice of registrants.
  • Providing simple and easily accessible information to the public considering non-surgical aesthetic treatments.

The JCCP will be undertaking a range of activities to raise awareness and to provide information to the public about how to identify ‘safe practice’. The main areas of activity will be as follows:

  • The establishment of a ‘Practitioner Register’ of professionals qualified and assessed to carry out non-surgical procedures against an agreed set of standards and qualifications.
  • The establishment of a ‘Register of Approved Education and Training Providers’ who meet the JCCP agreed standards for the provision of education and training.
  • The development of an ‘Information web-based portal’ that the public can access that will identify every JCCP registered practitioner and the modality and level at which they have been accredited to practice.
  • Through a range of ethically determined conventional and social media platforms.

The JCCP Practitioner Register is a voluntary register open to all practitioners working in the fields of non-surgical treatments (who are practising at and beyond Level Four as defined in the HEE Non-Surgical Cosmetic Interventions and Hair Restoration Surgery Education and Training Framework) and who meet the JCCP’s standards and criteria for admission to the Register. As the Register’s aims are to provide guidance to the public the JCCP has applied to the ‘Professional Standards Authority’ – the Governments Regulator of public sector healthcare-related registers in the healthcare sector – for accreditation of its practitioner Register.

The JCCP Practitioner Register is divided into two parts:

The JCCP has developed a set of entry requirements (in conjunction with many leading experts in the non-surgical sector) for persons wishing to join the Register which are linked to an agreed set of educational, clinical and practice-based standards set by the Cosmetic Practice Standards Authority (CPSA).

The CPSA is a sister body to the JCCP but completely independent. It is made of clinical and aesthetic experts who are charged with independently setting a framework of clinical and practice-based standards linked to the educational and qualifications framework produced by Health Education England (HEE):

The CPSA has used the framework developed by HEE to set clinical and practice standards across 5 modalities of non-surgical treatments that are currently recognised by the JCCP and the CPSA:

  • Toxins
  • Fillers
  • Peels
  • Lasers
  • Hair Restoration Surgery

The CPSA has also been charged with the responsibility to review any new treatments that emerge in the market place (Orphan Treatments) and in collecting data on ‘adverse incidents and complications’ occurring in the area of non-surgical treatments.

For more information on the CPSA and standards go to:

The JCCP categories of membership are as follows:

Part 1 – All members of the following Professional Statutory Regulated Bodies (PSRB’s)







Part 2 – Non-members of PSRB’s

Who meet JCCP entry requirements, including Beauty Therapists practising at and above Level Four of the HEE Framework and other non-registered PSRB practitioners.

All membership of the JCCP Practitioner Register is initially provisional until evidence can be produced to confirm that each Registrant confirms fully with the competence and proficiency requirements set down within both the CPSA and JCCP standards. There is a ‘fast track’ process for experienced practitioners.

There will also be a ‘Trainee Category’ included in the Register for persons enrolled on JCCP approved training programmes leading to a recognized JCCP qualification (this category of members will not be ‘public facing’).

The majority of practitioners will join the JCCP as a ’provisional member’ against an agreed set of entry requirements and will be required that over a two-year period following the date of their initial provisional registration with the JCCP, that they can demonstrate that they have fully met all criteria required in the JCCP/CPSA Framework of Standards. Dependent on the background of the Practitioner wishing to join they will be given a set period during which they are required to demonstrate that they have met the full standard.

The JCCP will operate a process called ‘grandparenting’ whereby practitioners previous qualifications and experience will be taken into account when assessing competence and proficiency against the agreed JCCP/CPSA standards.  A set of guidelines are available that define the term ‘grandparenting’ and the arrangements the JCCP will be putting in place. Grand parenting will be put in place for a defined maximum of two-year period – by which time the member must have reached the standard.

Grandparenting’ is the process whereby existing practitioners are exempted from any new qualification and practice requirements set by the JCCP/CPSA for a specified period of time but undertake a process whereby existing educational, clinical and practice-based skills can be evidenced against the newly agreed CPSA/JCCP framework.

The JCCP will embed standards and procedures to undertake the ‘Accreditation of Prior Learning’ which will be used as an authorised process by the JCCP if the candidate can demonstrate they have undertaken specific qualifications recognised by approved JCCP and educational providers and statutory regulators such as a ‘University’, UKAS or an OFQUAL approved Awarding Body. Additionally, the accreditation of Previous Experiential learning (APEL) will be considered for acceptance by the JCCP as long as it is:

  • Independently Valid and Verifiable
  • Contemporaneous
  • Relevant to specific area of practice/modality and to JCCP/CPSA standards.

The JCCP will confirm processes for verification and assessment by a range of JCCP approved bodies with experience of the practical skills involved in all key modalities and knowledge and awareness of the JCCP/CPSA Practice and Knowledge Standards.

There will be categories of practitioner that will automatically receive ‘Provisional’ membership’ of the register and these persons will be given a set period of time to establish and verify qualifications and experience against the agreed standards for ‘Full’ membership.

As a not for profit company the JCCP will rely on membership fee subscriptions to sustain its registers and other activities. The level of membership fee will depend on the type of membership involved and will be published before the launch of the JCCP in March 2018.

The JCCP has a specific set of procedures to follow in such situations. The procedures vary according to whether you are an existing and current member of a ‘Professional Statutory Regulated’ Body (PSRB) - (GMC, NMC, GDC, GPhC and HCPC) or not. The JCCP is in the process of negotiating formal agreements with these five Professional Statutory Regulated Bodies that recognises their primacy of interest in considering any ‘fitness to practice or conduct’ first before returning the matter to the JCCP for its own consideration, determination and action.

If you are not a current member of a Professional Statutory Regulated Body then any cause for concern or complaint will immediately be considered within the context of the JCCP’s own Fitness to Practice Procedures. All registrants who are also members of one of the above cited PSRB’s will also be subject to the JCCP’s Fitness to Practise Rules and procedures.

The JCCP is one of a number of different registers that practitioners can join. These vary from statutory registers maintained by Professional Statutory Regulators such as the GMC, NMC etc. to other voluntary registers, some of which are approved by the PSA and others which are not. Practitioners have a free choice when it comes to selecting and deciding to join voluntary registers.

Practitioners have a free choice when it comes to selecting and deciding to join voluntary registers.

The JCCP has negotiated Memorandum of Understanding with a number of the major PSRB’s outlining agreements of how we will seek to work together and advising of the procedures we will adopt for dealing with practitioner issues when a practitioner is a member of both a PSRB and the JCCP.

The target is to launch the JCCP Practitioner Register by the beginning of March 2018 subject to all requisite development actions being completed.

No. However the JCCP will be discussing a range of intensification measures with product and service suppliers, including insurers for JCCP members.
