Standards of conduct, performance and ethics
This page is about our standards of conduct, performance and ethics which are the ethical framework within which HCPC registrants work. It is important that registrants read and understand this document.
This document sets out the standards of conduct, performance and ethics we expect from the professionals we regulate. The standards also apply to people who are applying to become registered.
These standards were adopted in July 2008. We consulted in 2015 on revised standards. We expect these standards to be in place in January 2016. Until that time, however, the standards below remain in force.
