Accreditation and recognition panel

Each accreditation or recognition process is undertaken by a team drawn from the GPhC's accreditation and recognition panel. The size and make up of an accreditation team varies depending on the type of course being accredited.

Accreditation team members must abide by a code of conduct and declare any potential conflicts of interest with the course being accredited.
