Dietitians Registration Board

CORU is Ireland’s multi-profession health regulator.

Its role is to protect the public by promoting high standards of professional conduct, education, training and competence through statutory registration of health and social care professionals.

CORU was set up under the Health and Social Care Professionals Act 2005 (as amended).

It is made up of the Health and Social Care Professionals Council and 12 Registration Boards, one for each profession named in the Act.

The Dietitians Registration Board at CORU is one such board and has statutory responsibility for:

  • Establishing and maintaining a Register of members of the profession
  • Assessing, approving and monitoring training courses for the health and social care professions under the Act
  • Establishing the code of professional conduct and ethics and standards of performance to which dietitians must adhere.

The Board is now the designated Competent Authority and is responsible for recognition of qualifications gained outside the State.

Appointments to the Board are made by the Minister for Health.
