Steps which the Registrar may take

This section has no associated Explanatory Memorandum

5.—(1) Paragraph (2) applies where the Registrar is satisfied that a registrant—

(a)has failed to comply with the requirements or conditions of the CPD framework (including any failure to comply with requirements imposed in accordance with the provisions referred to in rule 4(8) or (9)); or

(b)has made a false declaration about compliance with the requirements or conditions of the CPD framework.

(2) Subject to paragraphs (3) to (5), the Registrar may decide to—

(a)impose on the registrant a requirement to take one or more remedial measures in connection with the registrant’s CPD; or

(b)remove the registrant’s entry from Part 1, 2, 4 or 5 of the Register (as the case may be); or

(c)remove an annotation in respect of a specialisation made to the registrant’s entry in the Register.

(3) In relation to a person (“P”) who is a registrant only as a result of being entered in Part 4 or 5 of the Register, the Registrar may not take any of the steps referred to in paragraph (2)(a), (b) or (c) unless the Registrar is satisfied that it is appropriate and proportionate to take that step in view of P’s continued lawful establishment in P’s home State as a pharmacist or a pharmacy technician (as the case may be).

(4) The Registrar must follow the procedure set out in rule 6(2) when imposing a requirement to take a remedial measure.

(5) If the Registrar proposes to remove an entry or annotation, the Registrar must follow the procedure set out in rules 7 to 10 (but this is without prejudice to rule 9(5)(b) and (6)).

(6) The fact that a registrant’s failure to comply with the requirements or conditions of the CPD framework arises by virtue of rule 4(9) does not prevent the Registrar from deciding to impose on the registrant a new requirement to take one or more remedial measures.
