Professional regulation or ‘control' does not begin as the sole function of a controlling body, it also arises as a device by which the client can appraise the worth of a provider among many who are offering their services within the same market-place.
Membership of the professional body, which becomes a statutory prerequisite for entry to the profession, is allowed only upon production of the appropriate qualifications [or apprenticeship] from an approved or designated institution and thus the total control of entry to the profession becomes effected.
The professional body acts to identify and protect all the interests of its members, and thus to regulate the profession generally, deal with dissemination of information and act in a consultative capacity both with the public and with government bodies or ministers.
