Our Standards

Our Standards encourage good practice. We develop standards for regulators and accredited registers to meet. We use them when we review the performance of regulators and accredit registers. 

We also have a role in promoting good regulation and good governance and have produced guidance for Boards and those making appointments.

We also publish good practice guidance for professionals and others. 

  • Standards of Good Regulation - we use these in our performance reviews of regulators
  • Standards for Accredited Registers - we use these when deciding whether to accredit
  • Standards for members of NHS Boards and Clinical Commissioning Groups
  • Good practice in making Council appointments
  • Sexual boundaries guidance for professionals and public

We are consulting on a review of our Standards of Good Regulation

We use these Standards as part of our performance review process of the regulators. We want to make sure that they are properly focusing on risks and regulatory outcomes. Find out more about the consultation and how to respond. The deadline for responses is 12 September 2017.
