Genetic Counsellor Regulation

Genetic Counsellor Regulation

The AGNC recommends that genetic counsellors working in the UK and Ireland are registered with the Genetic Counsellor Registration Board (GCRB).  The AGNC expects all genetic counsellors to have, or be working towards, professional registration that is current and valid.

For information regarding professional registration of genetic counsellors in the UK, please see the GCRB website http://www.gcrb.org.uk

The Joint Committee on Genetic Counsellor Regulation (JCGCR) considers issues around the regulation of the profession, and will keep the membership updated of their work.

The JCGCR recently issued a regulation information update.
