The NMC will ask you for information for the purpose of verifying the declarations you have made in your application. This will be a declaration that you have demonstrated to an appropriate third party that you have complied with the revalidation requirements. The NMC will ask you to provide the name, NMC Pin or other professional identification number (where relevant), , professional address and postcode of the appropriate third party.

13 An appropriate third party confirmer is:
An appropriate third party confirmer is your line manager. The NMC strongly recommend that you obtain confirmation from your line manager wherever possible. A line manager does not have to be an NMC registrant. If you do not have a line manager, you will need to exercise judgment to determine who is best placed to provide your confirmation. It is helpful if they have worked with you or have a similar scope of practice, but this is not essential. If that is not possible, you can seek confirmation from another healthcare professional that you work with and who is regulated in the UK. If your confirmer is an NMC registrant, they must have an effective registration with the NMC.
