The General Chiropractic Council (GCC) is a UK-wide statutory body with regulatory powers, established by the Chiropractors Act 1994. They have three main duties:

  • To protect the public by establishing and operating a scheme of statutory regulation for chiropractors, similar to the arrangements that cover other health professionals.
  • To set the standards of chiropractic education, conduct and practice.
  • To ensure the development of the profession of chiropractic, using a model of continuous improvement in practice.

Since 14 June 2001 the title of 'chiropractor' has been protected by law and it is a criminal offence for anyone to describe themselves as any sort of chiropractor without being registered with the GCC.
