Annual declaration to the GDC

Your 2018-2019 CPD cycle year is coming to an end and you are required to submit a statement to the GDC by 28 August 2019. The statement should detail the number of CPD hours you have completed during this year. All GDC registrants must complete a minimum of 10 verifiable CPD hours across any two consecutive years which are under the new Enhanced CPD rules. If you have not done any CPD in 2018/2019, you must still declare 'zero hours'. DTA members can read more in the May issue of The Technologist. If you are not already a member of the DTA you can join today to gain access to over 20 hours of free verifiable CPD (Click for application form)


To submit your CPD annual statement:

  1. Add up the number of verifiable and general CPD hours you have completed between 1 August 2018 and 31 July 2019.
  2. Log into www.egdc-uk.org  where you will be able to edit and submit your annual statement until 28 August 2019. If you have not already registered with the site, you can do so using your ID Verification Code. Logging directly onto eGDC will mean that your CPD hours are immediately recorded on their database. 

Please be advised your CPD statement must be received by 28 August 2019 or it will not be counted. If you do not submit a compliant statement before the deadline your registration may be put at risk.

If you have further questions please visit the GDC website www.gdc-uk.org or contact their helpline, which is open from 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday on 020 7167 6000 or email them at cpd@gdc-uk.org.
