CPD rules

These are set out in a statutory instrument (a legal document that has been approved by the Privy Council) and outline:

  • the circumstances in which registrants can be regarded as having failed to comply with our CPD requirements, and
  • the steps that we may take if a registrant fails to comply with our CPD requirements.

The General Pharmaceutical Council (Continuing Professional Development and Consequential Amendments) Rules Order of Council. 2011/1367, London: HMSO [PDF, 80.6KB]

In most cases, if a CPD record that has been submitted for review does not meet our requirements, the registrant concerned will be asked to improve it within a set timescale.

Failing to respond to a request to submit a CPD record for review or to any subsequent reminders may, result in removal from our register.
