The LSI National Credentialing Register
The LSI National Credentialing Register is the culmination of extensive work between the major healthcare trade associations (ABHI; ABPI; AXREM; BAREMA; BDIA; BHTA; BIVDA; MEDILINK UK), NHS England and the Academy for Healthcare Science. Now, working with Medical Industry Ltd, this provides firstly, a not-for-profit registration system that has patient and public safety at its heart and secondly, a potential solution to the issue of multiple providers of credentialing systems which creates confusion and duplication and is costly to the healthcare industry and ultimately, as a consequence, the NHS.
The scheme was developed with the objective of enhancing patient and staff safety.
The scope and criteria for the scheme is public and agreed by all parties involved.
The criteria are appropriate to the level of risk and will not create undue cost or administrative burden.
The criteria will be applied across all industry sectors in an equitable manner and entry will be open to all relevant individuals.
The scheme meets legal requirements on employment law and data protection as well as government and NHS policy on working with industry.
The requirements do not duplicate procedures already in place within the suppliers’ processes and evidenced by other mechanisms such as product CE marking, contractual obligations, etc.
The Life Science Industry National Credentialing Register is the first of its kind and sets national standards for healthcare professionals working in the life sciences industry providing reassurance to the NHS.
Under the Accredited Registers programme, registrants will be able to display the Accredited Register quality mark, a sign that they belong to a register which meets the Professional Standards Authority’s robust standards.

ABOUT THE REGISTER
