The Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners (JCCP) and clinic group sk:n have announced a partnership to enhance regulation in the aesthetics industry.
Through this partnership, sk:n and the JCCP aim to raise awareness surrounding the dangers of having under-qualified practitioners carry out non-surgical treatments and continue to lobby the Government to introduce laws to regulate the industry.
The JCCP launched a Ten Point Plan in 2021, whilst sk:n clinics have strict supplier protocols and standards set out by the sk:n’s Medical Standards Committee. Through this partnership, the associations hope to accelerate regulation in the industry from licensing of premises to the training and qualifications of practitioners.
David Sines, chair of the JCCP, commented, “The JCCP has established a very
positive relationship with sk:n over many years. Experts from sk:n have been
actively engaged since 2016 in assisting the JCCP to develop a number of its
published standards and have contributed extensively to broader debates about
regulation and patient safety. The JCCP is delighted to be able to formulise
this relationship into a clear partnership where both parties can contribute to
raising standards regarding patient safety, ethical practice and public
protection as central tenets of our shared mission and values.”
