Process for removal of an entry from the RCCP Register.
- In the case of circumstances 1 to 3 above
Sometimes the RCCP will be advised that a circumstance applies to a registrant from a third party, such as an employer or work colleague. In such circumstances, RCCP will establish the validity of a reason for removal directly from the individual registrant who is subject to removal concerned before commencing the removal process.
- In the case of circumstance 4 and/or 5 above
- In the case of circumstance 6 above
- In the case of circumstance 7 above
A registrant who believes that they have been incorrectly removed from the register shall, within 14 days of receipt of a letter advising of their removal submit to the RCCP evidence that they do meet the requirements of registration with RCCP contrary to the reasons sent out in the notification.
The Registrar of RCCP will consider such evidence from the Registrant and advise them within 14 days that their registration has been restored and if it hasn’t been restored, the reason(s) why.
The Registrant may further appeal to the RCCP Council by email to the Chairman email@example.com containing both their evidence for restoration to the register and the response from the registrar giving reasons why their restoration has not been accepted. Failure to provide both will mean that the appeal will not be considered by the RCCP Council. The decision of the Council shall be final.
