Fair Registration Practices Act

The Fair Registration Practices Act (FRPA; the Act) applies to 48 regulatory bodies in Nova Scotia, covering 58 occupations and 21 designated trades. A regulatory body (regulatory authority or regulator) sets the standards and regulates how people practice as members of an occupation. Everyone who practices within a regulated occupation must register with the regulatory body. FRPA governs the process a regulatory body follows to register a person who applies to practice as a member of that occupation. FRPA states that registration must follow a fair procedure and be transparent, objective, and impartial. The government may directly regulate the occupations or delegate that authority to another organization.
