Internationally, credentialing has been described as a central function of the regulatory system requiring “licensure, certification or authorisation by a national governmental agency”. It is a term applied to “processes used to designate that an individual, programme, institution or product have met established standards,” as set by a national body. In the Australian context, this is achieved through statutory regulation in the form of profession-specific registration.

This is your opportunity to have your say and review the national policies and ANMF (SA Branch) feedback to ensure that these remain contemporary and reflect the position of members.
