Is Acupuncture regulated in Ireland?

No, the practice of acupuncture is not currently regulated in Ireland and anybody can call themselves an acupuncturist. This is changing however as the Department of Health & Children has established a Consultative Forum with a number of Associations representing Acupuncture/TCM and other practitioners of Complementary Medicine with a view to establishing a framework for regulation and a report is now gone to Government. ACI is the Irish regulatory body for acupuncture and TCM in Ireland.
