​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Discipline Hearings

A registrant can only be disciplined by CDSBC or its committees once a formal discipline hearing leading to an adverse finding has taken place*. More information about the College’s complaints and discipline process is available here.

Following a discipline hearing, the Discipline Committee may make a range of orders, including:

  • reprimanding a registrant,
  • suspending or cancelling registration, and
  • imposing other sanctions.

*exception: the Inquiry Committee may suspend a registrant or impose limits or conditions on their practice pending a hearing of the matter if there is an urgent public protection issue under section 35 of the HPA.

Upcoming hearings

All discipline hearings are open to the public; however, space may be limited and observers will be asked to RSVP. Notice of hearings will be published here two to four weeks in advance of the hearing.​


Discipline Hearing: Dr. Ernst Herbert Schandl

The hearing scheduled for May 16, 2022 was cancelled when Dr. Schandl made admissions and proposed a resolution under section 37.1 of the Health Professions Act. A panel of the Inquiry Committee accepted the proposal and will issue an order shortly. ​
