The BSB will be issuing a Consultation Paper in early 2013, the purpose of which will be to set out the BSB’s existing processes and to consult with interested parties on a number of revisions that have been made to the Fitness to Practise Rules and the supporting Guidance (both of which have been amended with a view to modernising the drafting style and increasing clarity).

Following the issuing of the consultation paper, those interested in providing a view should send their responses to: Siân Mayhew ( The BSB will then summarise the responses received and will publish a summary document on its website. If you do not want your response, or a summary of it published please make this clear when you reply to us.
