Reaccreditation Audit

Reaccreditation Audit

Each month we will audit a percentage of accredited members who have made Declarations. It is statistically likely that you will be audited every five years, however the selections will be made randomly so it is not possible to know when or how often you will be audited.

For members who join the CBT Register via the 'Return to Practice' route, we will audit all of these members 12 months afterwards.

The Audit Process

If you are selected, we will send you an email. You will then have six weeks to let us have the required documents. If you don't submit them or contact us about any problems, your accreditation will lapse.

If we find evidence of inaccurate declarations or false statements, we will lapse your accreditation and recommend to the Board that they remove your membership.

You must be in practice in the UK or its territories or Ireland at the time of completing the Audit. You can still be audited if you have taken time off in the twelve months prior to the audit - just note this on the submitted forms. We don't expect you to have done CPD and supervision in that time. 

Feedback on your Audit

The Auditors will contact you or other people who have submitted or signed documents for your Audit if they need any further information.  We will let you know by email if your Audit has been successful. 

If you haven't met all the requirements, the Auditors may impose a condition on your Reaccreditation - you will be asked to submit additional documents such as a further Clinical Supervision Log Book (CSLB) or CPD Reflective statements/evidence after a specified period of time.  Or you may be audited again the following year.

You must comply with any conditions set. If your Audit submission does not meet our standards, your accreditation may lapse. If you do not agree with our decision, you may appeal within 28 days of the date we sent you the outcome of the audit. If you wish to appeal, please email In the first instance, the decision will be reviewed by the Chief Accreditation Officer who is the Registrar, and may be referred to the Practitioner Accreditation Committee.

We won't expect you to have met the full requirements if you have had an extended period out of practice in the past year. Time off and Reaccreditation. 

You must complete a Leave of Absence form [Word] if you are taking time off, and let us know when you go back to work. If we don't know you are off or practicing out of the UK and you are selected for audit during this time, we will give you a new Audit date once you have returned to work.
