About Us - About the JCCP

New Structures for the Non-Surgical Sector:

  • Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners - JCCP –

    the body that registers practitioners and approved education and training providers with the key remit of ensuring patient safety

  • Cosmetic Standards Practice Authority – CPSA –

    the body that sets practice standards for the non-surgical sector and collects data on adverse incidents and complications.

The JCCP Aspiration....
