Additional Requirements
All registrants listed are fully insured, first-aid qualified and are committed to undertaking continual professional development to ensure their skills remain current - all of which form part of the requirements to remain registered.
 

Regulated

We are dedicated to protecting the public and regulating independently, fairly, consistently and proportionately. The IFA sets, requires and promotes good standards of personal behaviour, technical competence and business practice. We provide a clear framework that registrants must meet when providing care, treatment and services to patients and service users and also a clear framework so that members of the public, service users and patients can hold a registrant to account if the standards and guidance are not followed. The outcomes of any sanctions applied as a result of an investigation are published to promote learning amongst its registrants and to protect the public. The IFA ensures the guidance it provides to registrants is consistently reviewed and updated, taking into consideration new legislation, changes in law and service user feedback.

Code of Conduct Ethics and Practice 
The IFA requires all those displayed on its register to comply with the IFA’s Code of Conduct, Ethics and Practice. These are the standards for safe and effective practice which every registrant must follow. They also set out the quality of care that patients and service users should receive from those listed on our register. All registrants have a duty of care to protect the health and wellbeing of their clients and are personally accountable for their actions and must be able to explain and justify their actions. This ensures that they are practising within their competence and refer service users to other professionals when required. The Codes also explain how registrants identify any risks presented by a client e.g. contraindications, in providing a treatment with clear guidelines on how to mitigate them.

As a single discipline body with a long-standing reputation in the field, we understand the challenges, education, research and development requirements of our registrants, which allows us to deliver a specialist service to them. In addition to the above, the IFA also provides guidance to its registrants to address specific or specialist issues which complement and further develop the standards of competence and conduct prescribed in the codes. To assist our members keep abreast of the latest research in the field and ensure they continue to apply evidence-based practice, we provide our registrants with a research search facility and access to specialist databases to inform their work. We also provide a protocol for clinical trials that are not using an investigational medicinal product (non-CTIMP) and research guidelines.

Supervision
All our registrants have an appointed mentor for their region with whom they can discuss issues affecting their work and continuously reassess and improve their skills. From the feedback, the IFA then identifies potential skill gaps, recommends appropriate training and organises CPD training and workshops. Equally, where a registrant has gaps in their professional practice/employment due to illness, injury or other personal circumstances we will require the registrant to undertake refresher training to re-join the register.  

All registrants are required to declare that they:
•    do not have a criminal record (including cautions);
•    have not been subject to any disciplinary or civil proceedings in relation to their practice;
•    and do not have any health issues that may impact their ability to practice;

to ensure fitness to practice. 

The IFA undertakes spot check to ensure compliance with its standards and consults with other regulators where appropriate. We are currently a verifying agent of aromatherapists for the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) which is accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA), a body accountable to the UK Parliament.
