At the heart of each jurisdiction's regulatory process is a set of standards and competencies a professional must meet, and uphold, in order to maintain their license or registration. Given their central importance, it is critical that these standards are objective, fair and defensible. Drawing on a wealth of examples from both health and non-health regulators and from across a variety of jurisdictions, this CLEAR Call webinar series will provide attendees with examples of best practice in the design, development, and maintenance of standards, approaches to standards setting employed by international certification bodies, and, moving beyond the regulatory world, consider those lessons that could, and should, be learned from the use of standards by other industries.

If you're involved in setting standards in your organization, how do you know you have all the elements of a robust standard-setting process?  This three part series on the complex issue of developing and setting sound and rigorous standards/rules in the field of professional regulation will serve to:


i.) discuss and explore the challenges of developing sound standards

ii.) explore proposed elements connected to sound standard setting

iii.) provide a model found in ISO to compare and contrast elements found in regulatory frameworks, and

iv.) provide successful examples of robust standard/role setting from around the globe

This final webinar in the series will explore those lessons that can be learned from standard setting process exemplars in place in regulatory organizations. Discussion will relate to the previous two webinars and to the implications for building public confidence.
