Get involved – current consultations

The BSB is keen to hear your views on a consultation that we are currently holding.

"No Further Action".

We want to tidy up the regulations in relation to complaint handling by removing the power of our Professional Conduct Committee (PCC) to take "No Further Action" (NFA) decisions . In our consultation paper, we set out our case that the terms of the new Handbook have made the use of the power to take NFA almost redundant and incompatible with the definition of professional misconduct.

We suggest that removing the power will tidy up the complaints regulations and remove any uncertainty in how the PCC's powers are applied. The consultation closes on Friday 10 April 2015. To respond, please click here.
