Honesty and integrity

Making sure your information is true and your evidence is genuine

Because our primary role is to protect the public, we need to carry out a number of checks on your application and the evidence and information you send to us.

It is your responsibility to ensure that the information you provide is true and the evidence you submit is genuine, whether you submit it yourself or through a third party.

In particular:

  • Your evidence must be objective. This means it is issued by a third party, based on facts and not influenced by a relationship to you, other than professional or educational relationships. This is why we ask that your reference and medical report is not written by a patient, relative or employee.
  • The evidence you send to us must be verifiable so we can check it is genuine, if we so wish.
  • Evidence you provide in isolation or in combination with other evidence and information must clearly demonstrate that you meet the requirements for registration
  • We may refuse your application for registration if:

o   you cannot provide evidence

o   your evidence does not clearly show you are of good character

o   your evidence does not clearly show you are physically and mentally fit

o   you do not meet the requirements for registration

o   you do not provide complete and truthful information

  • If you have special or unusual circumstances we may ask that you provide some additional information or documents to us to support your application.
  • The application form includes a declaration, that you must sign, to confirm you have answered the application form correctly. If it later comes to light that you have not been truthful with your application, then the General Council may instruct the Registrar to remove your name from the Register.

Please read our guidance for chiropractors applying for registration.
