On Dec. 1, Council reviewed member and stakeholder feedback related to proposed amendments to the College’s Registration Regulation, the General By-Law and the Fees By-Law.
Council approved the proposed revised Registration Regulation -- which sets out the requirements for entry to practice, ongoing membership and reinstatement -- for forwarding to government. It will come into effect when it is approved by government.
Council also approved by-law amendments related to the regulation:
- the amendment to Article 44.2 regarding information from members will come into effect immediately; and
- the amendment to the Fees By-Law, setting the fee for the lifting of an administrative suspension, will come into effect when the Registration Regulation comes into effect.
The College had also published a proposed new Article 44.4 regarding professional liability protection, to be included in the General By-Law.
This By-Law would only come into effect if and when the government proclaims new provisions in the Health Professions Procedural Code related to professional liability protection. Since those provisions have not yet been proclaimed, Council has deferred decision on the proposed new Article 44.4.
Members will be kept informed on the status of the Registration Regulation and related By-Law amendments through the College’s website and future issues of The Standard.
