Welcome to the Genetic Counsellor Registration Board Website
Welcome to the website of the Genetic Counsellor Registration Board (GCRB).
The purpose of the GCRB is to establish, maintain and improve standards of practice in genetic counselling to assure public safety in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland.
It seeks to achieve this through accepting responsibility in three primary areas :
- Setting and monitoring standards for entry to the profession.
- Establishing and maintaining open and transparent systems of professional accreditation.
- Maintaining and improving standards of professional practice, to protect and promote the professional reputation for the benefit of the profession and public alike.
The vision of the GCRB is “ensuring expertise to serve families with genetic conditions”.
The GCRB register has been accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under its
Accredited Registers programme*
(*Professional Standard Authority accreditation applies to the UK only; it does not apply to GCRB Genetic Counsellors practicing in the Republic of Ireland.)
