Regulatory and Professional Organisations

The General Chiropractic Council (GCC) is a UK-wide statutory body with regulatory powers, established by the Chiropractors Act 1994. It’s purpose is to protect the public by establishing and operating a scheme of statutory regulation for chiropractors, to set the standards of the chiropractic profession, to ensure the development of the profession and to promote chiropractic as contributory to the health of the nation. The GCC Register opened on 15 June 1999. From the 14 June 2001 the title of 'chiropractor' has been protected by law and it is a criminal offence for anyone to describe themselves as a chiropractor (whether expressly or by implication) if not registered with the GCC.
