Care Quality Commission (Registration) Regulations 2009: Regulation 12

The intention of this regulation is to make sure that providers have produced and sent to CQC a clear statement of all the information listed under Schedule 3.

Providers must notify CQC of any changes to their statement of purpose and ensure it is kept under review, and notify CQC when there are any changes to the information listed in Schedule 3.

CQC can prosecute for a breach of this regulation or a breach of part of the regulation. This means that CQC can move directly to prosecution without first serving a warning notice. Additionally, CQC may also take any other regulatory action. See the offences section for more detail.

CQC must refuse registration if providers cannot satisfy us that they can and will continue to comply with this regulation.
