About Annual Online Declaration

After full accreditation, ongoing listing on the CBT Register UK is dependent on annual Reaccreditation. This now takes place by fully accredited members making a annual declaration.

The Declaration states that you are fulfilling the required standards for CBT practice, CBT supervision, and CBT Continuing Professional Development as outlined in the respective Reaccreditation guidelines. You also attest to abiding by the Standards of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.

How the process works

Fully accredited members will be invited by email to make the declaration within the month prior to online declaration being due. This will generally be on the anniversary of the award of your last accreditation or reaccreditation.

The declaration form will be attached to the email. This should be downloaded, fully completed and then the completed form returned by email to declarations@babcp.com. Declarations sent to any other BABCP addresses may not be processed.

What am I declaring?

The form is a simple series of tick boxes through which you:

  • Verify that you are in current CBT practice in the UK, its territories or Ireland
  • Confirm that you abide by BABCP’s Standards of Conduct, Performance and Ethics
  • State that you have fulfilled the required standards of CBT supervision and CPD
  • Make declarations regarding any criminal or disciplinary cases against you

Members with Supervisor and/or Trainer and dual AREBT accreditations will also tick boxes to confirm that they are meeting the requirements for those awards.

What if I am not in practice?

You must be in current clinical practice in the UK or its territories or Ireland to make this declaration. If you anticipate being on leave of absence or are working abroad, please contact accreditation.admin@babcp.com as soon as you know the details, giving the dates of your leave of absence or move abroad, and you will be advised as to whether your declaration date will be changed.

Members who are on leave of absence at the time they are due to make their online reaccreditation declaration will generally remain accredited and make their declaration at the same time the following year; it is expected that you will maintain records of CPD and supervision as soon as you return to practice.

What if I fail to make the declaration?

Should no declaration be made, this will be followed up with a further reminder from accreditation admin - and if there is no response to this further prompt within a calendar month, this will result in self-removal from the register. In this case, it will be possible to go through the process of reinstatement of accreditation.

Evidence of inaccurate declarations or false statements will result in self-removal from the register and a recommendation to Board for removal from membership.
