17 Aug 2012


The GMC has published new revalidation guidance for Responsible Officers. The guidance, 'Making revalidation recommendations: the GMC's responsible officer protocol' outlines the GMC's expectations for the recommendations that ROs will make about doctor's revalidation.


The protocol contains four key sections:

  • An introduction to the RO role, specifically in regards to recommendations
  • An outline of what ROs will need to take into account when they consider their recommendations
  • The recommendation statements for each of the three categories of recommendation that ROs will be able to make
  • The criteria for each of the three recommendation categories.


The protocol is available to view as a series of web pages on the GMC's website. It can also be downloaded as a comprehensive PDF document.
