By maintaining Registration, an individual demonstrates that they are committed to upholding high professional standards and to keeping their knowledge, skills and experience up-to-date through ongoing professional development.

The Academy has published the Standards of Proficiency and Standards of CPD for its register of Healthcare Science Practitioners, which had been revised following consultation. Alongside the Standards, the Academy has also published the rules and procedures that set out the day to day operation of the register and its response to the consultation on these rules.
