Professional Standing Form

If you are an RCDSO member and are moving to another province or country or are seeking hospital privileges in Ontario, you will often be asked to provide a Certificate of Standing.

Standard processing time for those with no past/current conduct issues on file with the College is 10 business days once the completed form and applicable fees are received. Those with extensive past/current conduct issues or who have resigned with the College can expect a processing time of upwards of 20 business days.

We do not expedite standard requests. If you have special or extenuating circumstances related to an application in another jurisdiction, or a hospital in Ontario, and have no current/past conduct history with the College, you can request to have the process expedited and it will be considered.

The fee for this request is $75 and can be paid by VISA, MasterCard, or AMEX by completing the credit card section on the form. It can also be paid by sending a cheque or money order to the College, but choosing this payment method will delay processing time while staff continue to work remotely.

Review and complete the PDF form and submit to the College by email or fax.
