The Councils Vision, Mission, Objectives and Strategies The Councils vision is to cover professionals and others by professional standards schemes, integrate high professional standards as part of professional practice and increase protection of consumers of professional services. The Councils mission is to promote self-regulation by occupational and professional groups through the implementation of professional standards schemes. The objectives, and strategies for achieving them, are: The adoption and implementation of professional standards legislation in all jurisdictions by: Supporting the adoption of national professional standards legislation; and Establishing guidelines and policies for Councils in each jurisdiction. Encouraging occupational associations to adopt best practice professional standards by: Developing best practice guidelines on risk management strategies and professional standards for occupational associations through research and consultation; and Establishing rigorous practical guidance for occupational associations to apply for and administer professional standards schemes. Ensuring the integrity of professional standards schemes by: Developing policies and procedures to ensure rigorous assessment and evaluation of applications for professional standards schemes and annual reporting requirements; and Developing policies and procedures to ensure meaningful annual risk management reporting by participating occupational associations. Building community awareness and demand for schemes by: Developing and promoting the use of the Councils trade marks by professionals and others enjoying the benefit of a professional standards scheme; and Improving consumer awareness that professionals and others who enjoy the benefit of a professional standards scheme have made a commitment to engaging in risk management strategies and improving their professional standards. 3
