GOC Fee Increase for 2019-20

The General Optical Council has approved a £350 registration fee for fully qualified registrants and body corporates for the 2019/20 year. This is a £10 (2.9 per cent) increase from the previous year, which is broadly in line with current inflation.

The fee increase is part of a three year budget strategy to moderately increase registration fees each year to ensure that the GOC has the sufficient funds necessary to carry out its statutory public protection duties.

The GOC’s registration fees rules are available on its website: https://www.optical.org/en/Registration/registration-fees.cfm.
