The Professional Standards Authority accredits voluntary registers of people working in a variety of health and social care occupations. In order to be accredited, organisations that hold voluntary registers must prove that they meet our demanding Standards.
We do this so that the public, employers and commissioners can choose to use people who are on a register that we have independently assessed and approved. We provide assurance that the registers are well run and that they require their registrants to meet high standards of personal behaviour, technical competence and, where relevant, business practice.
Only registers that we have accredited are allowed to use our accreditation mark.
Frequently Asked Questions about accreditation are answered here.
