About

Credibility

The IBCE is committed to advancing the field of chiropractic by providing innovative and meaningful measurement solutions. We inform policy worldwide by establishing chiropractic standards of health care as well as an acceptable level of education and competence.

The IBCE’s uncompromising commitment to quality enables the development of standardized tests that will be recognized by educators, councils, or other interested parties. These exams reliably measure chiropractic knowledge, clinical skills, and professional attitudes.

“In order to ensure patient safety and the qualified practice of chiropractic, a system of independent examination and licensing is necessary. On completion of the full period of training, the student’s theoretical knowledge and clinical competence in chiropractic should be independently evaluated through official examinations.

Continuing professional development should be encouraged for maintenance of licensing.”

From the “WHO Guidelines on Basic Training and Safety in Chiropractic,” World Health Organization, Geneva 2005.

Local Control

We strive to advance the quality of chiropractic care worldwide. However, the IBCE understands that the model for chiropractic testing in one country may not be appropriate for other regions or countries. The IBCE therefore enlists the aid of advisors throughout the world to guide the development of locally appropriate and adaptable services.
