The Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners (JCCP) has received accreditation for from the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) for a second year in a row.
The PSA annual review reported on JCCP activity, including the work of the stakeholder council, raising public awareness of the risks involved in non-surgical treatments, the introduction of the new Fast Track Assessment process and the continuing development and implementation of standards in the sector.
The PSA recommended that the JCCP should consider including risks related to adjunctive therapies and consider recording these within its risk matrix. As well as this, they also recommended that the JCCP should consider developing a policy regarding its approach to complaints involving adjunctive therapies performed by its registrants.
Christine Braithwaite, the PSA’s director of standards and policy said, “We are pleased that the JCCP continues to meet our demanding standards and has successfully passed its annual accreditation assessment. We commend its work to help protect those seeking to use the services of cosmetic practitioners, and its partnership work with key stakeholder groups to achieve this.”
Executive chair of the JCCP, Professor David Sines, added, “The JCCP is delighted to receive confirmation of renewal of its annual approval from the PSA as it strives to promote and develop standards and best practice across the whole of the non-surgical and hair restoration surgery sector and to promote and publicise the same to the public.”
