Care Quality Commission (CQC) Registration

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is a taxpayer-funded body responsible for regulating health and adult social care services (provided either by the NHS, local authorities, private companies or voluntary organisations) in England.

All establishments where health-care professionals (e.g. doctor, nurse etc.) undertake certain 'regulated activities' must register with the CQC under the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2010.

Some points applicable to laser risk management include:

The identification, assessment and review of risk
The need for effective risk management
Competency and skills
Implementation of guidance issued by safety experts
Taking published guidance into account.

The last point emphasises the value of appointing a 'laser protection adviser', LPA) and providing suitable laser safety training for all staff involved with lasers.
