There are a number of international approaches to the regulation of a profession, including:
  • Registration: Statutory regulation of a profession involves the setting of standards, the keeping of a register of qualified persons, the awarding of titles, the protection of title by law, the establishment of rules of conduct, and the disciplining of registered person who transgress such rules.
  • Licensing: An area of work restricted by statutory licensing cannot be undertaken by an unlicensed person.
