BANT fully supports and recommends that all nutrition professionals involved in providing advice to the public should come under the strictest regulation and from 2014 all members have to be registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).
CNHC is the UK voluntary regulator for complementary healthcare practitioners that was set up with government support to protect the public. CNHC holds a UK register of practitioners who have met national standards. CNHC's register has been approved as an Accredited Voluntary Register by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care (PSA). This means CNHC has met the PSA's demanding standards. All CNHC registered practitioners are entitled to use CNHC's quality mark which demonstrates a commitment to professionalism and high standards. As the UK regulator and Accredited Voluntary Register the public and those who commission the services of complementary healthcare practitioners can choose with confidence, by looking for the CNHC quality mark.
In the October 2010 Department of Health GP Bulletin, a request was made by the DH that all GPs and Chief Nursing Officers recommend patients who are seeking complementary therapies to consult with practitioners who are registered with the CNHC, where it registers the professional discipline concerned.
