PROFESSIONAL REGISTRATION BODY

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.

A PROFESSIONAL REGISTRATION has to be maintained on a regular basis in line with the requirements of the PROFESSIONAL REGISTRATION BODY.

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).
