The General Chiropractic Council (GCC)

The General Chiropractic Council (GCC) regulates chiropractors in the UK to ensure the safety of patients undergoing chiropractic treatment.

They are an independent statutory body established by, and accountable to, Parliament to regulate the chiropractic profession. The GCC protects the health and safety of the public by ensuring high standards of practice in the chiropractic profession.


The GCC CPD scheme provides a structure for you to follow to satisfy the statutory CPD rules. The basic requirements of this programme are:

  • identify learning needs/interests and produce a personal plan of learning activities to address them,
  • undertake and record at least 30 hours of CPD activity in accordance with your plan, of which 15 hours or more constitutes learning with others; and
  • reflect on one learning activity and answer four questions so the GCC can understand what members took away and where its leading too next
