BABS has been appointed as a Designated Body (DB) in 2016 for appraisals and revalidation as required by the GMC. To ensure impartiality, the association employs independent experts from the specialist organisation MEDSU. Members wishing to have their appraisal and revalidation with the BABS as their DB will have their appraisers appointed by MEDSU under the supervision of the Responsible Officer: Professor R. Kazi.
Per the specifications of the GMC, annual appraisals cover the complete scope of cosmetic practice of BABS members. Further, the BABS supports the GMC policy of revalidation and relicensing of doctors every five years.
