CQC Glossary of terms used in the guidance for providers and managers

A register that has been accredited by the Professional Standards Authority. This means that the organisation that holds the register meets demanding standards set by the Authority in: governance, setting standards for registrants, education and training, managing the register, providing information and handling complaints. A voluntary register differs from a statutory register because practitioners are not obliged to be registered in order to practise.
