Inquiry Committee members work in panels of three to review complaints about registrants that are received by CRNBC. A member of the public participates in every panel meeting. The Committee authorizes investigations of complaints, reviews investigative materials, and makes decisions about a registrant's professional conduct, competence, and fitness to practice.
After reviewing investigative materials, the Committee has the authority under the Health Professions Act (The Act) to take no further action or to request a registrant to consent to: remedial actions, reprimands or other types of disciplinary action, limits or conditions on their practice and various undertakings. It also has the authority to issue a citation for a hearing by the Discipline Committee. During an investigation, or pending a Discipline Committee Hearing, the Inquiry Committee may set limits and conditions on the practice of the registrant in question or suspend the registrant's registration to protect the public. The Committee also reviews and makes decisions regarding a registrant's compliance with and fulfillment of terms, limits or conditions on the registrant's practice.
