- Degree-level training - British Acupuncture Council members are fully trained in acupuncture to degree level, meeting standards laid down by the World Health Organisation (WHO).
- Codes of professional behaviour - All members agree to abide by the BAcC’s codes of professional conduct and safe practice, which lay down benchmark standards for the whole of the UK acupuncture profession.
- Professional development - Every member has to undertake at least 30 hours continuing professional development a year in order to remain on the BAcC register.
- Reliable information - The British Acupuncture Council can give you clear and accurate information to help you choose an acupuncturist able to meet your needs.
- Complaints procedure - Any complaint made against a member is handled fairly and robustly by the BAcC. In addition, the British Acupuncture Council will not admit any acupuncturist who has been struck off another accredited register.
- Public recognition - The British Acupuncture Council is widely recognised and supported by other key health and care stakeholders in the UK.
- PSA approved - The British Acupuncture Council has been rigorously assessed by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) and awarded the PSA quality mark. All of our members are part of this government-backed initiative to protect the public. Indeed, the PSA recommends that the public only see practitioners who belong to an accredited – or statutory – register.
