In July 1995, the Council on Chiropractic Practice (CCP) was established with the mission of "developing evidence-based guidelines, conducting research and performing other functions that will enhance the practice of chiropractic for the benefit of the consumer."

It is an apolitical, non-profit organization, and is not affiliated with the ACA, ICA, WCA, FSCO, COCSA, FCLB, or any state association.

To fulfill its mission, the CCP created a multidisciplinary panel, supported by staff and led by a project director. This panel analyzed available scientific evidence relating to the vertebral subluxation and directed a critical review of numerous studies and other evidence.

The panel solicited input from representatives of more than 35 technique developers in order to determine the degree to which their techniques could be expressed in an evidence-based format and to obtain any evidence they could supply to substantiate their protocols.
