Share your views on guidance for Investigating Committee decisions
19 February 2018
The guidance which the GOsC’s Investigating Committee (IC) uses to make decisions about which matters should be referred to a public hearing, is being updated and we are consulting on the draft new guidance.
The IC is a panel of at least five people who consider cases prepared and referred by the GOsC’s Regulation Team. The overall aim is to enable the IC to make consistent, fair and proportionate decisions.
The key changes proposed for the Guidance include:
- providing detailed guidance on the IC’s role and function
- being clearer about the process for reaching decisions
- detailed guidance on issuing advice
- providing reasons
- incorporating the threshold criteria into the guidance
The draft IC Decision-Making Guidance has been produced taking into account views fed in by members of the IC and the GOsC’s Policy Advisory Committee.
