The Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners (JCCP) will open its Practitioner Register and Register of Approved Training Providers on 1 March.
Established in 2016, the JCCP is a body for self regulation of the surgical and hair restoration surgery sectors in England, including facial aesthetics practitioners.
The JCCP, under the leadership of Professor David Sines CBE, has spent the last two years working with multiple stakeholders to deliver a new voluntary regulatory body to oversee both patient safety and public protection in the cosmetic sector.
In order to achieve these aims it has worked with its sister body, the Cosmetic Practice Standards Authority (CPSA), to ensure that a new and comprehensive evidence-based set of practice and education standards is delivered to achieve full implementation across the sector in England.
Four years in the making
‘It is an incredible honour to be able to launch the JCCP after what is in effect four years of consistent and consolidated work undertaken by multiple stakeholders, who together have worked tirelessly to co-design the Council’ governance and operating systems and to assist in setting standards to assist in the regulation of the non-surgical cosmetic and hair restoration sector’, commentedJCCP chair, Professor David Sines CBE.
‘This has only been made possible by the immense range of support provided on a voluntary basis by so many representatives from across the sector.
‘I pay special tribute also to my colleagues at the CPSA – chaired by Simon Withey – who together (and for the first time) have managed the complexity involved to develop a comprehensive set of practice standards for implementation across the sector, for use by all practitioners.’
