The movement of professionals across international and regional borders is a global phenomenon.  From the perspective of regulators, balancing the need to provide a cost effective, fair and swift process whilst at the same time ensuring that all applicants meet their professionals standards is an every day challenge.  In addition, regulators must manage in an environment where the impact of incorrectly admitting an unsuitable individual to a register can lead to significant consequences for members of the public, and mistrust in the regulatory process.

The webinar will provide an opportunity to learn about the practical experiences of two professional regulators.   The Ontario College of Pharmacists regulates 11,500 pharmacists in Ontario and is recently subject to legislation requiring labour mobility across Canada. The Health Professions Council regulates 15 different health professions in the UK and is subject to labour mobility across the European Union.  Participants will gain an insight into how both organisations manage their processes and other related developments in the area.
