A subtype of ORGANISATION.
A PROFESSIONAL REGISTRATION BODY administers the registration of a PERSON who is a CARE PROFESSIONAL or other professional, to enable them to practice their profession. For example the General Medical Council is a Regulatory Body for CONSULTANTS and other doctors.
In specific professions, an EMPLOYEE must have successfully completed a recognised or accredited training programme and applied to the relevant PROFESSIONAL REGISTRATION BODY in order to be registered as able to practice. This registration is recorded by a PROFESSIONAL REGISTRATION for each PROFESSIONAL REGISTRATION TYPE held by the EMPLOYEE.
For certain POSITIONS within an ORGANISATION it is mandatory for the EMPLOYEE to hold a PROFESSIONAL REGISTRATION of a given PROFESSIONAL REGISTRATION TYPE or from a list of PROFESSIONAL REGISTRATION TYPES (as multiple PROFESSIONAL REGISTRATION TYPES may be acceptable for the POSITION).
