All members must take note of the following regarding the College’s proposed regulations for:
2. Conflict of Interest
Although these Regulations have not yet been enacted, it is expected that members will follow these Regulations as being reflective of the current standards of practice in these areas. They reflect the most current thinking of the Council of the College as to: the distinction between improper and proper advertising, and what situations may give rise to a real or perceived conflict of interest for members, respectively.
The enacted Professional Misconduct Regulation refers to each of these three areas broadly.
1. Paragraph 1.24 of the Professional Misconduct Regulation defines professional misconduct as including “Improperly advertising or permitting advertising with respect to the member’s practice”. Members should take the proposed Advertising Regulation into account as guidance as to the distinction between proper and improper advertising.
2. Paragraph 1.11 of the Professional Misconduct Regulation defines professional misconduct as including “Practising the profession while the member is in a conflict of interest”. Members should take the proposed Conflict of Interest Regulation into account as guidance regarding what situations may give rise to a real or perceived conflict of interest.
The regulations are:
Proposed Advertising Regulation 2013
Records Regulation 2015
Proposed Conflict of Interest Regulation 1996
