Find out about the CPD auditing process
All chiropractors registered with us must complete 30 hours of CPD each year to stay on the register. This involves filling in a CPD record summary and giving information of the learning they have done.
Each year we ask a sample of chiropractors to send in evidence of their learning so that we can check broad compliance with our CPD scheme. We do this by randomly selecting a number of chiropractors by computer and asking them to send us the evidence linked to their annual CPD record.
The following questions are for chiropractors who have been randomly selected as part of the CPD audit process.
We recognise that CPD covers both self-directed learning, for example reading books or researching topics, and learning with others. However, since we cannot check information on self-directed learning, we ask for documentary evidence of learning undertaken with others.
All evidence of the time you spent learning with others must be from a third party who was involved with the learning activity you completed. If it was a formal event, such as a seminar of lecture, then it must be from the organisers of the event. If it was informal, such as case discussion with colleagues, then the evidence would need to be from one of your colleagues present at that discussion.
Evidence can be in the form of a certificate, signed letter, or an email from the person verifying your CPD. Emails must be sent directly to us: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note we do not accept the following as evidence of CPD:
You can upload evidence of your learning via the portal in the same place that you complete your CPD record summary.
If we do not receive the evidence to verify 15 hours of learning with other people by 30 September, and you do not have exceptional circumstances that would allow the Registrar to waive the requirement for that year, you may be removed from the register.

We check a percentage of annual CPD summaries and have developed a process to ensure we engage with each registrant fairly, giving them the opportunity to show us how their CPD meets our requirements.
When reviewing the CPD record summaries, we check that:
In the vast majority of cases it is clear that the registrant has met the CPD requirements and we will notify the registrant by email that their CPD has met the requirements of the scheme.
