From May 2000 the Osteopaths Act came into effect to maintain standards within the profession. This act insures that no one is able to work as an Osteopath unless they are registered with the General Osteopathic Council ( GOsC ).To be registered an Osteopath must have successfully completed a four year full time or six year part time degree course at an accredited establishment. Thirty hours of continual professional development must also be completed yearly to keep all Osteopaths up to date.

The Osteopaths Act is welcomed as a final recognition of the role which osteopathy plays within modern healthcare.
