We set standards for regulators and accredited registers. We sometimes develop standards or guidance for people working in health and care too. You will find them here.
Guidance for patients, health professionals, education and training providers and fitness to practise panels published in 2008 and 2009.
We were commissioned by the Secretary of State for Health in July 2011 to develop Standards for members of NHS boards and CCG governing bodies in England, covering personal behaviour, technical competence and business practices.
These are the current Standards of Good Regulation which we use to assess regulators' performance. These Standards started to be used from January 2020 and replaced the previous Standards.
