Congress Themes

Global Mobility and Entry to Practice will focus on the challenges and opportunities created by increasingly mobile workforces, and discuss the issues occupational regulators face when performing the "gatekeeper" role that is fundamental to professional regulation.

Governance and Accountability in Professional Regulation will ask: who regulates, how is this task carried out, and is there an optimal model? The role of the profession/occupation will be considered, as will the part government and other critical stakeholders play. The latest trends in roles, structures, and approaches to oversight will be reviewed and discussed.

Striving for Continuing Competence will review the role of the regulator in ensuring competence is demonstrated throughout a registrant's career. The variety of approaches taken by jurisdictions and professions will be discussed as well as research on assessment for learning and assessment for improving practice.

The themes of the Congress are pertinent to regulators regardless of which profession(s) or occupation(s) they regulate.

About the Regulatory Research Day

The Regulatory Research Day encourages information-sharing and networking among international researchers, regulators, accreditation authorities and practitioners. Join us as we explore the role research plays in shaping regulatory policy-making, and discuss the steps necessary to pursue an international research agenda. The event will include presentations on local and international research, provide opportunities for networks to be strengthened, and innovations in regulatory arrangements to be explored.
