Application for initial registration

The subsequent registration is managed exclusively via the QUETHEB portal for MEMBERS.


The case processing

According to the statutes, the improvement and further development of quality standards in nutritional therapy and nutritional advice is the task of QUETHEB e.V.

The "case processing" must be processed in writing for the registration "nutritional therapy".

The days of "case processing" serve to further increase the quality of the QUETHEB registration and to offer the registered specialists the opportunity to check their current knowledge in a practice-oriented manner, to exchange and discuss the cases with colleagues and thus to benefit from each other.


The registration “nutritional counseling” is not affected, as these specialists either do not yet have sufficient professional experience in this area and / or do not work with patients in individual counseling.

All information on case processing can be found in the detailed explanations on QUETHEB registration (see application documents).

Technical requirements for participating in case processing:

  • Internet access
  • Email Account
  • Adobe Acrobat Reader DC

Case processing appointments you'll find here.


The registration commission

The voluntary, independent, interdisciplinary committee meets 3 times a year to review and approve registration applications.

The next meeting dates of the registration commission can be found here.
