The Recertification in Colonoscopy Conjoint Committee (RCCC) is a national body comprising representatives from the Gastroenterological Society of Australia (GESA), the
Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP) and the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS).
The RCCC has assumed administration of the Recertification in Colonoscopy Program from 1 February 2023.

Committee members are experienced current practitioners as individuals and bring a range of experience in both area of practice (physicians, surgeons, colorectal surgeons,
paediatricians and more) and location from the East Coast to the West Coast of Australia (including urban and rural practice).
The role of the RCCC is to:
oversee the implementation of the program;
set and review standards for recertification;
determine and oversee the process of recertification;
review, develop and deliver the education and training program in partnership with the existing GESA National Endoscopy Training
