‘Standards for Optical Businesses – an introduction’ webinar

On 1 April we published our new Standards for Optical Businesses which will come into force on 1 October. The new standards have been positively received and reflect ‘what businesses are already doing’.

To help business registrants with the implementation of the new standards, we will be holding a webinar called ‘Standards for Optical Businesses – an introduction’ on 24 October at 5:30 pm, which will feature a panel of opinion leaders, GOC committee members and staff, and experts from across the optical sector. The webinar will include information about why the business standards are important and how they can be applied in every day practice.

The webinar has been CET approved for both optometrists and dispensing opticians and will be worth one interactive CET point.

We are keen to find out what you would like to know about the new business standards, so please email your questions to and we will answer as many as we can during the webinar.
