Combined Practice Inspection checklist - Scotland

The Combined Practice Inspection (CPI) Checklist includes items that are categorised as 'essential', 'best practice' or 'for information'. All items identified as essential must be met.

The CPI checklist covers:


  • Practice details and personnel (part 1)
  • Practice requirements (part 2)
  • Observation of decontamination process (part 3)
  • Individual surgeries (part 4)
  • Practice/Clinic inspection visit report.

The checklist requires practitioners to have available relevant documentation. BDA Expert contains various relevant model policies and protocols which will help.


Scottish Dental Clinical Effectiveness Programme (SDCEP) has also produced a useful practice support manual.


Sedation Practice Inspection Report has also been developed and a copy of the sedation practice checklist in Word format is also available for download.
