Where an allegation1 has been referred to the fitness to practise committee2 there may be one or more procedural hearings3 and there must be a substantive hearing4.
The parties to hearings before the fitness to practise committee are entitled to be heard5. The parties may be represented6 at any such hearing and, where an individual registrant7 is not represented, he may be accompanied and advised by any person8, provided that such person is not entitled to address the committee without its permission9.
Where the registrant is neither present nor represented at a hearing, the fitness to practise committee may nevertheless proceed
