Maintenance of Registration Guidelines

To maintain registration, Genetic Counsellors are required to pay an annual subscription fee and then every 5 years submit evidence to support renewal of registration. 

Renewal of registration will require the demonstration of continuing professional development (CPD), reflective writing on CPD and two references that demonstrate that standards of practice have been upheld.

The documents required for maintenance of registration are listed below please read all of them thoroughly including the guidelines on maintenance of registration and CPD. 

Renewals are reviewed by designated GCRB Members and ratified by the Board at the GCRB summer meeting.

The Maintenance of Registration Guidelines include information on maternity leave, taking a sabbatical, long-term sick leave or taking a career break. The guidelines also include information on what happens if your registration is LAPSED for any reason.

If you have any questions please contact the GCRB administrator at
