Our standards

When considering cases about fitness to practise, we take account of the standards we have published.

The two sets of standards we use are:

  • the standards of proficiency (we publish a separate set of standards for each profession we regulate); and
  • the standards of conduct, performance and ethics (which are the same for all professions).
