(c)require A to—

(i)declare that A is not aware of any investigation by any enforcement or regulatory body, or proceedings brought by such a body, that relate to A’s fitness to practise, or of any act or omission on A’s part which might render A liable to an allegation being referred to the Council that A’s fitness to practise is impaired,
