The CQC Scope of Registration

The CQC is a regulatory body, and not an advisory one. As such they are not able to tell or advise a provider which regulated activity they may or may not be carrying out. The only advice the Commission can give, is to look at the “Scope of Registration” document, which should help the provider determine whether or not what they are doing falls within the scope of registration.

There is an expectation that providers look at this document and then apply for registration if they believe what they are doing meets the CQC definition of any given regulated activity.
