What is a CCPS?
This is a document which gives details of your registration, your chiropractic qualification and also confirms whether or not you have any disciplinary history or current pending actions. It used to be referred to as a certificate of good standing.

Who will you send a CCPS to?
The CCPS is for other regulatory bodies either in the UK, such as the General Medical Council, or overseas regulators, such as the Allied Health Professions Regulatory Agency in Australia. We only send these certificates direct to other regulators. It is not appropriate for these certificates to be used for visa applications or for prospective employers.
Is there a fee for sending a CCPS?
We charge £50 for issuing certificates to cover administrative costs. You can pay by filling in the card payment form. Other payment options can be found here.
How do I request a CCPS?
You must fill in the application form here before we send out the certificate and pay the £50 fee. Please note that we do not send the CCPS to registrants, although we will normally email a scanned version to you as confirmation that it has been issued.
How long does it take to issue a CCPS?
As the information on the certificate relates to your standing with the General Chiropractic Council, we need to make checks with our fitness to practise team. This means it can take up to three weeks before we issue the certificate.
