The British Association of Dermatologists' 2009 recommended process manual for developing clinical guidelines is accredited by NICE. The accreditation recognises the stringent protocol that the BAD employs in producing clinical guidelines.
The accreditation is valid for 5 years from May 2010 and has been extended by agreement to May 2016 and retrospectively covers guidelines that were accepted for publication from September 2008.
The accreditation also means that future BAD guidelines will not only need to follow the accredited process manual strictly, but also fulfill all of the 25 criteria set by NICE in order to maintain the BAD's status as an accredited guidance producer (please click here for the NICE guidelines checklist).
Further information on the BAD's accreditation decision can be found on the NICE accreditation portal.
