Advice for scheme associations

The decision to award a Professional Standards Scheme that limits civil liability recognises the commitment an association has made to the improvement of professional standards and the protection of Australian consumers.

To satisfy the requirements for limited liability under professional standards legislation, associations covered by a Professional Standards Scheme are required to meet a range of statutory obligations. We are committed to helping associations to meet these obligations and achieve their self-regulatory goals.

The information in this section is designed to help your association fulfil its regulatory, compliance and annual reporting requirements, and maximise the benefits of its Professional Standards Scheme.
