Retention deadline now passed

17 Mar 2009

Back to news listing

The deadline for retention forms and payments has now passed. In total, 91 per cent of registrants successfully applied for retention by the 15 March deadline. Registrants who have not yet renewed their registration have until 31 March to complete and return their application form and fee, or risk removal from the registers.

For those who missed the 15 March deadline, the cost of retention has increased to £239: a £20 late application penalty is included in addition to the basic £219 retention fee. If the £20 late application penalty is not included, the form and payment will be returned to the registrant.

Registrants who fail to apply for retention by 31 March will be removed from the Opticians Registers on 1 April.
