Governance

You can find the governing documents of the RCPCH, including our Royal Charter, Bye-Laws and Regulations below.

The Royal Charter was granted to the RCPCH in 1996 when the organisation was established as the successor to the British Paediatric Association. It sets out the RCPCH’s overall objects in improving child health.

Amending any of these documents requires the approval of both the College’s Board of Trustees, the governing body, and a General Meeting.
