What is the JCCP?

question markJCCP stands for the Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners.

This group was created in 2016 with the objective of improving patient safety in non-surgical cosmetic treatments, but the full launch is anticipated in April 2017.

What Organisations are in the JCCP?

The JCCP is currently made up of the following:

  • British Association of Cosmetic Nurses (BACN)
  • British College of Aesthetic Medicine (BCAM)

This is open to expansion and development for the future with potential multidisciplinary collaboration to provide public protection and assurance.

What is the Role of the JCCP?

The role of the Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners is to:

  • Oversee compliance with clinical standards established by the new Clinical Standards Authority for Non-Surgical Cosmetic Interventions (CSA)
  • Develop an educational and training framework linked to the standards and processes of accreditation
  • Maintain a register(s) of members who meet the entry requirements of the JCCP and abide by its Code of Practice
  • Collaborate with stakeholders such as JCCP and advise regulatory bodies such as:
    • Department of Health (DoH)
    • Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA)
    • General Medical Council (GMC)
    • any others as relevant (within the context of its defined remit)

The JCCP will work with the CSA to ensure patient safety in cosmetic injections such as BOTOX and dermal fillers.

Professor David Sines is Interim Chair of the JCCP. He sees the formation of the JCCP, together with the CSA, as a good step forward:

“Sections of the non-surgical cosmetic interventions industry remain largely unregulated, however healthcare professionals have made important strides in improving patient safety.
