What if I don't renew?

Failure to submit a completed renewal by the deadline will result in your license being suspended. This means that you’re no longer legally able to practice as a Dispensing Optician, Contact Lens Fitter or provide any restricted activities such as sight testing. 
 
Members of the public can ensure a Licensed Optician is properly registered with the COBC by using our online registry or by asking to see a registration certificate which should be displayed in a prominent location at the workplace.
