Abstract Clinical ethics committees (CECs) are increasing in number in the UK and have mostly developed in response to local interest, as opposed to being mandated as in the USA. However, there is no regulatory framework for UK CECs with no defined educational requirements or specification of core competencies for their members. The UK Clinical Ethics Network has consulted extensively with its members to set out, for the first time in the UK, the core competencies necessary for the provision of clinical ethics support. Recommendations for educational and membership requirements for CECs have also been made. Given the appropriate resources the standards proposed can be appropriately evaluated and are consistent with principles of ethical governance.
