About the Regulation SIG

Our Regulation Special Interest Group (SIG) encourages dialogue and disseminates knowledge about better regulation issues among professional bodies.

All PARN members are encouraged to join and spark discussions on a relevant issue.

Meetings and events are held throughout the year for members of this group to come together and share their knowledge, experiences and concerns. Summaries and presentations from previous meetings can be found on the Members Area

Compendium of Guidance Notes

 A wide range of issues have been dealt with by the PARN Regulation Special Interest Group and have found their way into guidance documents. The contents of these guidance documents can be regarded as the basis for a valuable induction to new recruits to the regulatory procedures of professional bodies, as well as reminding old hands of the collective wisdom of the many who have been attending regular SIG meetings over the past seven years.

You can preview the Table of Contents from the 2021 Compendium of Guidance here.

PARN would like to thank the members of the Steering Group supporting the Regulation Special Interest Group (SIG) for their work in reviewing and enhancing these notes. The Steering Group comprises Liam Russell (Chartered Insurance Institute), Debrah Harding (Market Research Society) and Tina Russell (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development).
