In these Articles, charitable means charitable in accordance with the laws of the United Kingdom provided that it will not include any purpose that is not charitable in accordance with section 7 of the Charities and Trustee Investment (Scotland) Act 2005 and/or section 2 of the Charities Act (Northern Ireland) 2008.
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
Protecting the Public
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 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 up 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:
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 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:
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.
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 PSRBs 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 PSRB 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 PSRBs will also be subject to the JCCP’s Fitness to Practise Rules and procedures.
The JCCP has appointed HF Resolution to develop and manage the JCCP Practitioner Register. HF Resolution is an independent private company with experience of managing registers across a number of sectors. It has specialist knowledge of the aesthetics sector.
Telephone: 0333 321 9413
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.
The JCCP has negotiated Memorandum of Understanding with a number of the major PSRBs 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.
