About the Regulation & Legal SIG

Our Regulation & Legal Special Interest Group (SIG) encourages dialogue and disseminates knowledge about better regulation and legal 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.

The Regulation & Legal SIG is kindly sponsored by Bates Wells. Bates Wells is a top-ranked law firm with a specialist team focusing on professional bodies. The team provides practical, enterprising and commercial advice across a wide range of legal disciplines, based on a detailed understanding of the sector.

Upcoming Meetings:

Due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19 we have placed in person meetings of the Regulation SIG on hold. We will instead be bringing the group together virtually, please keep an eye on the PARN website for further news regarding this. 

Compendium of Guidance Notes

 A wide range of issues have been dealt with by the PARN Regulation and Legal 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.

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 Philip Yelland (Law Society Scotland), Debrah Harding (Market Research Society) and Tina Russell (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development).
