CPD Accreditation in 2015: CPD Providers – Are you up to date?

A new continuing professional development (CPD) accreditation scheme was implemented in January 2015.

Under our new CPD Provider Accreditation Scheme 2015, we accredit barristers' chambers (and other organisations) to provide CPD to barristers and those accredited CPD providers are then authorised to self-accredit CPD activities in accordance with the CPD accreditation policy and guidance. The new scheme is intended to give greater autonomy to accredited CPD providers, whilst at the same time introducing a level of quality assurance.

If your chambers was previously accredited under the old CPD accreditation scheme and has not yet transitioned to the new scheme, please contact CPDAccreditation@BarStandardsBoard.org.uk or 020 7611 1444.
