Guidance for case examiners



The GOC recognises that it is important that patients, registrants, professional and representative organisations, and other stakeholders, including the general public, are aware of the basis upon which the GOC’s case examiners operate and make decisions about registrants' fitness to practise.

This document contains guidance to be used by the GOC’s case examiners when considering complaints about a GOC registrant’s fitness to practise, fitness to undertake training or fitness to carry on an optical business. The guidance is intended to encourage consistent decision-making by the case examiners.
