Regulation & Governance

Osteopathy in Ireland is self-regulated by the Osteopathic Council of Ireland (OCI). There is currently no state regulation or protection of the title “Osteopath” in Ireland.

The OCI is in the process of applying for full Irish State regulation under the Health and Social Care Professionals Act (2005), and we are working towards achieving full state regulation by 2014.

The OCI aims to protect Osteopathy by adhering to the highest clinical and professional European and International standards until full regulation is in place.

The OCI represents Irish Osteopaths in the Forum for Osteopathic Regulation in Europe (FORE), to ensure that the codes of practice in Ireland are at the highest European standard.
