All practising barristers are required to complete Continuing Professional Development (CPD). Failure to complete CPD can result in Corrective Action or a referral to the Bar Standards Board's Professional Conduct Department for enforcement action.

The latest information on CPD requirements is available on the Bar Standards Board website.

The Bar Standards Board established a working group to review CPD and began a consultation on its report in June 2011. Further details can be found on the Bar Standards Board website.
