CPD audits

Each time you renew your registration, you'll be asked to sign a form to confirm that you continue to meet the HCPC’s standards, including CPD

During each renewal we randomly select 2.5 per cent of each profession and ask them to submit their CPD profile.

If you're selected for audit, you'll be notified by post at the beginning of the three-month renewal window.

Service update: Registration

  • Processing UK and readmission applications is a priority for us. We will strive to achieve our normal processing times, however, we are subject to limited access to incoming post, so please bear with us.

  • We are working hard to achieve our normal processing times. However, we are subject to limited access to incoming post and this will affect those times. Incoming applications may be subject to delay and we will advise applicants accordingly.

  • Registrants will understandably be concerned about how they can keep up to date with CPD or have time to submit profiles if chosen for audit at this time.

    Individuals should comply with their CPD obligations, where time allows and if it is possible to do so.

    In the current circumstances, our Council has taken the decision to cancel the audit process for Physiotherapists and Art Therapists. We have since sent out a written confirmation of this to those selected for CPD.

    If you are not one of these professions and have a previous CPD audit which is outstanding you would like to query, please email Please note that if you are awaiting for your profile to be assessed, this will still go ahead and we will notify you of the outcome in due course, this only applies to previous audits.

    Regarding upcoming audits in the near future, including Dietitians, the CPD audit will not go ahead for this professional cycle. We will continue to review this and will communicate with our registrants once CPD audits are due to resume. 

    We will continue to update this page with further details when needed.


  • We will continue with our planned renewal timelines, but with extra flexibility understanding the pressures our registrants will be under.  

  • Please do not telephone us at this time, but instead email our team at and we will respond as soon as we can.
