What are the consequences of failing to make an appropriate disclosure?

From 2014, if you fail to disclose any conviction/adverse finding (or at any time make a dishonest disclosure or statement as part of these procedures), that in itself may amount to ‘disgraceful conduct in a professional respect’ (commonly referred to as ‘serious professional misconduct’) and may be referred to the RCVS Disciplinary Committee. Such an allegation will be investigated as part of the standard concerns process.
