Historical first - professional registration for Educational Audiologists
The first ever professional registration for Educational Audiologists was announced by the British Association of Educational Audiologists (BAEA) in 2018. The voluntary registration is with UK's Registration Council for Clinical Physiologists (RCCP) who enforce high standards of practice and maintain a public database of registrants for six disciplines.
Further to the June 2018 press release, final completion of the new Educational Audiology registration development process was completed in July 2019, following the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) accreditation renewal of RCCP in early 2019.
In May 2021, RCCP announced it will become a subsidiary of the Academy for Health Care Science - AHCS; with transition of business functions over the next 12 months and no immediate changes for registrants.

Registration options and application guidance can be found in the 'Becoming a Registrant' Tab of the RCCP website.
