HOW MUST THE INSPECTION QUESTIONNAIRE BE FILLED IN?
The initial document (first year after joining) must be filled in as complete and as truthful as possible. The document will then be discussed at the first inspection and suggestions made as to changes that may be appropriate. Do not “over-think” the questionnaire: You will be assisted on the day of inspection with the parts you have difficulty with.
WHY ARE INSPECTIONS NEEDED?
To confirm that a Cosmetic Practitioner on the Register is adhering to accepted industry standards and to assist, where needed, to correct and update individual Practitioners who fall short of expectations.
WHY MUST THE INSPECTIONS BE INDEPENDENT and VOLUNTARILY?
To address fears that the procedure may just be a sham and not a formal, unbiased and valid evaluation. The evidence regarding Adverse Events will then also be seen as a true reflection of the standard.
Because there is no statutory obligation to be on any Cosmetic Practitioner Register and to adhere to any Code of Conduct, all membership and inspection is totally voluntary. We are in the process to upgrade
procedures and structures to enable us to apply for accreditation from the Professional Standards Authority by the end of 2015.
WHO CAN THE CPR INSPECT?
The CPR can only inspect paid up members, who have completed the Inspection Questionnaire and have invited the inspector to attend them. A yearly Certificate of Inspection will be issued after inspection.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM THE INSPECTION?
The inspection is not to penalise anyone but to assist in establishing and then elevating the standard of Practice of all members of the CPR. It should be seen as something to look forward to as new ideas may
be discovered and techniques learned. The onsite Inspection will record photographic evidence of the member’s practice and procedure.
WHAT IS THE SCOPE OF INSPECTION?
You will see that the inspection will be covering a wide area of evaluation. This is meant to assist you in identifying and preventing aspects on which you can be criticized.
The Inspection focus mainly on the following 4 areas of your Practice:
- Your Clients
- Your Treatments
- Your Facilities
- Appearance as far as personal care is concerned.
- Presentation to the Public as a professional and confident Practitioner.
- Ethical conduct towards clients and other members of the profession.
- Training and Continuing Professional Development.
- Advertising and business competition to a standard that does not harm the industry.
- Satisfaction, not so much with treatment only, but also with the general way in which they are managed.
- Continuing care and follow-up.
- Complaints procedure.
- Health and Safety issues.
- Source of potential infections.
- Compliance with Local, National and EU legislation.
- Impact on the environment.
