Annotation of the Register


We have powers to 'annotate' or mark qualifications on our Register. Currently we annotate the Register where we are legally required to do so. However, we also have powers to annotate the Register where we choose to do so.

We have developed a policy setting out our broad approach to annotation of the Register. The policy is available in a statement below. We have written this policy statement drawing on information we gathered following a public consultation.

In general, we will only annotate the Register where we are legally required to do so or in exceptional circumstances where we have evidence that annotation is necessary to protect the public and where we believe that annotating the Register is the only mechanism that could improve public protection.

This statement does not apply to situations where we are legally required to annotate the Register.

This statement does not limit our discretion to annotate the Register. Instead, we will have regard to the principles set out in this statement when making decisions about whether or not we annotate our Register.

Please contact the Policy and Standards department (policy@hcpc-uk.org) if you have any questions about this statement.
