The General Osteopathic Council is the statutory regulator for osteopathy in the UK. Our powers were given to us by Parliament under the Osteopaths Act 1993.

Our role, constitution and key duties, and those of our statutory committees, are governed by the Osteopaths Act and a number of additional pieces of legislation, known as ‘secondary legislation’.
