The Investigating Committee, the Competence and Conduct Committee, and the Health Committee each have the power to impose interim orders. These are orders which take effect either before a final decision is made in relation to an allegation or pending an appeal against such a final decision.
A panel of the committee concerned may only make an interim order if it is satisfied that:
it is necessary for the protection of members of the public
it is otherwise in the public interest, or
it is in the interests of the registrant concerned
for that person's registration to be suspended or to be made subject to conditions.
An interim order may be either:
an Interim Conditions of Practice Order—which imposes conditions with which the registrant must comply for a particular period of time, or
an Interim Suspension Order—which directs the Registrar to suspend the registrant's registration for a particular period of time
An interim order has effect immediately and its duration
