Professional Standards Forum on ‘Fit for purpose regulation: lessons from reviews’

The Professional Standards Councils look forward to hosting the next Professional Standards Forum, to be held online on Thursday, 30 March 2023 from 2pm-4:30pm AEDT. 

The Forum is a community of practice event for occupational associations to connect, learn and share experiences on professional standards regulation.  

The Forum will open a discussion on opportunities for associations to build fit-for-purpose regulatory systems and foster continuous improvement practices to respond to emerging risks and improve consumer protection. It will present contemporary case studies and lessons learned from review processes conducted across several sectors. 

Professor Ron Paterson from the University of Auckland will join the panel. Professor Paterson will present findings from an association-initiated independent review examining the regulation and representation of legal services in Aotearoa New Zealand. The review will identify areas where improvements can be made to set a pathway for regulation and complaints systems into the future. 

The full program of speakers will be provided closer to the date at
