Updates to HCPC Standards for Sport and Exercise Psychologists

29th August 2023

The Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) has recently updated its standards for Sport and Exercise Psychologists. These updated standards will come into effect on 1 September 2023. The revisions reflect the dynamic nature of the field and the evolving demands of the profession. The changes are designed to underscore HCPC's commitment to maintaining the highest standards of practice, ensuring the safety and well-being of both practitioners and the public. 

To help navigate through these updates and gain a comprehensive understanding of the revised standards, we encourage both potential registrants (including those on SEPAR, the Sport and Exercise Psychology Accreditation Route) and current registrants who are members of BASES to visit the HCPC website here, where you will find a wealth of informative resources provided by the HCPC, designed to facilitate a smooth transition into the updated standards.


BASES stands for the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences. BASES is the professional body for sport and exercise sciences in the UK.
