I need to disclose a new conviction, how do I do this?

You can disclose a new conviction online in the ‘My Account’ area as part of your annual renewal. You will be asked to provide supporting documentation, where relevant. Alternatively, you can notify the Professional Conduct Department, using the details below. Either way a member of the Professional Conduct Department will contact you following the disclosure of a conviction, to confirm they have received it.
