Provisional Membership is an interim category for a maximum of 6 months for practitioners who have either trained overseas or at a course not recognised by BANT as being accredited by the Nutritional Therapy Education Commission (NTEC). After 6 months it is expected that full membership will have been attained by completing the requirements relevant to each route.
An application using Provisional Membership (A1) must be a Dietitian registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
An application using Provisional Membership (A2) must have one of the following registrations:
If an applicant is NOT registered with the CNHC or HCPC or UKVRN and resides and works in the UK and has been in practice for a minimum of 3 years, they will need to apply for registration with the CNHC via the External Full Portfolio (EFP) Route before they can apply for Provisional Membership (B). For information on the External Full Portfolio (EFP) Route see CNHC Registration for Non-BANT Members for application forms and supporting documentation.
