Past Hearings

On this page, you can find the determinations of all of our Fitness to Practise hearings from the last twelve months (transcripts are not displayed - see below). After one year, we only keep hearing details on our website where the sanction is still in force. You can see details of these hearings here.

If you know of somebody who is practising illegally following a GOC fitness to practise sanction, please email us at ftp@optical.org or download an illegal practice complaint form from our investigating complaints page.

Every month we send out a list of that month's amendments to our registers - if you would like to be included on the mailing list, please email registration@optical.org.

Transcripts

Requests, including Freedom of Information requests, for a copy of a transcript of a hearing may be requested through the Hearings Manager. A request form (below) can be downloaded. The form will be submitted to the Hearings Manager whereupon a quote will be provided and you will be required to sign an undertaking to pay all associated costs which are based on the Transcriber’s hourly charges for transcription, photocopying charges (where applicable) and a GOC administration fee which will vary according to the size of the transcript.

Redacted transcripts. Where a request is received for a transcript which has undergone redactions due to the sensitive nature of proceedings, the Hearings Manager will redact the transcript accordingly, and you will be charged by the GOC for the full rate of its production as described above. Please send all transcript requests to hearings@optical.org.
