What is Regulation?

Regulation sets the rules and standards for an industry.  It protects the health and safety of consumers by ensuring that licensed individuals meet the standards of practice and competency.

Regulation also provides support, clarity and an even playing field among professionals.

Regulation means:

  • Transparency for the consumer
  • Safe, ethical treatment for companion animals
  • Training methods supported by higher level, regulated organizations (e.g. veterinary medical associations)
  • Fair and ethical business practices
