British Acupuncture Council

Visit website:

The British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) is a self-regulatory body for the practice of traditional acupuncture in the UK. The register is accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

At its most recent annual review of accreditation in April 2021, BAcC was issued with four Conditions. Conditions Two and Three were due in July 2021, and have now been reviewed following submission of evidence. You can read our report of these Conditions here.

The remaining conditions, will be reviewed in due course, are:

  • Condition 1: BAcC must review and update its risk matrix to ensure that risks relating to misleading advertising are adequately considered. BAcC must provide an updated version of its Risk matrix to the Accreditation team by the time of its next assessment
  • Condition 4: BAcC must provide a report to the Accreditation team after the first three months of monitoring has taken place, setting out findings and any actions taken.
