Additional auditing services in development such as inspectorates
IQ Verify are in discussions with UKAS to be the first certification body to adopt an eAssessment approach to ISO17024:2012 Personnel Certification.
Stemming from our successful UKAS accreditation at Level 4, IQ Verify have developed a follow up programme from Levels 5-7 in skin rejuvenation. This framework addresses microneedling and chemical peel treatments to more advanced depths against the requirements of the latest cosmetic guidelines. This framework is currently being piloted prior to its submission to UKAS for accreditation.
Working with BioEdTech, IQ Verify are developing a unique and progressive industry learning programme culminating in an ISO 17024:2012 aligned examination of plant science knowledge and comprehension. Following it's successful pilot this International certification scheme will be submitted for UKAS review and accreditation.
Working in Partnership with ATAI, IQ Verify have been developing a certification scheme aligned to ISO17024:2012 that aims to provide a focused pathway into the aesthetic sector for those with an interest in working in the field. The delegate gains a full foundation education required to practice with competence. This includes core skills, professionalism, law and ethics, clinical governance, anatomy and physiology, skin peels, microneedling and laser and light treatments. Following it's successful pilot this International certification scheme will be submitted for UKAS review and accreditation.
This endorsed Certification Scheme allows personnel in ‘Hard’ Facilities’ Management (FM) to get a recognised certification to act either as Competent Person (CP) or Authorised Person (AP) Ventilation. It covers primarily the Healthcare (FM) Sector, but is portable to wider industry in general. Having qualified personnel allows FM companies to meet Safe System Of People (SSOP) requirements and a Competence Management System (CMS). These act as indicators in demonstrating to a Principal Client that technical and safety standards can be achieved.
Despite a growing awareness for the need for public facing transparency with regards to practitioner competency within the field of aesthetic medicine, there is currently no national register (voluntary or otherwise) for non-medical practitioners of injectables- a field of practice for which these non-medical personnel are legally entitled to operate. Confounding the issue further, there are currently no licensing or other checks on the quality or standard of any such practitioners, nor is there any statutory requirement for such.
As non-medical injectors continue to practice within the sector, unhindered by the current lack of legislation, this has created a need for action to help protect and inform public awareness.
The ACPB was launched to do just that- to provide a register for non-medical injectors that could evidence conformity against the latest cosmetic standards (CPSA, ACPB etc.). To achieve this goal, the ACPB approached IQ Verify, with experience within the field of aesthetic medicine, to provide independent 3rd party auditing services against the standards as defined for ACPB membership.
