The British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) was formed in 1995 by the unification of the five member organizations of the Council for Acupuncture (1980-1995). Their membership agreed that a single body should represent and govern professionally qualified, classically trained, acupuncturists in all aspects of their work.
Members of the BAcC have completed a thorough and extensive training of at least three years of full-time study (or the part-time equivalent) in classical acupuncture and Western medical sciences, appropriate to the practice of acupuncture. They carry the letters MBAcC after their name.
The BAcC maintains standards of education, ethics, practice and discipline to ensure the health and safety of the public at all times. It is also committed to promoting research and enhancing the role that classical acupuncture can play, both in the health and well-being of the public.
As of 2017, the BAcC has over 3,000 members, who are covered by full Medical Malpractice and Public/Products Liability insurance and whose details are published on the BAcC website and in the annual Register of Practitioner Members.
