Appeal Process

Applicants may appeal against a decision to refuse them registration following assessment.  The purpose of the appeal procedure is to allow an applicant to challenge any perceived flaw in the handling of their application for registration, on the grounds either that the decision was not warranted on the basis of the information provided, or because the procedure was faulty.  The UKPHR Board will maintain their obligation to demonstrate to the public that the published standards of competence are being maintained.  The onus will be on the specialist to establish that the decision should be reviewed.  No new material relating to the application can be submitted for an appeal hearing, because the appeal is against the assessors’ recommendation.  The inclusion of new material would constitute a reapplication rather than an appeal.
