Regulators events and annual forum


The National Regulators Community of Practice (NRCoP) is an active network of over 6500 public sector regulators from all levels of government, regulatory sectors, professional backgrounds, roles, and levels of seniority, who are keen to learn from and with each other.  

The NRCoP offers free and open access to thought-provoking, inspiring learning events in each chapter, both online and in-person, providing opportunities for regulators to connect with each other and learn together. These events include webinars, the Annual Forum, facilitated conversations, local chapter networking opportunities, and more.

NRCoP Annual Forum

Preparation is underway to bring back the Annual Forum in 2023! The Annual Forum is a two-day event, held in Melbourne, and is the highlight of the regulatory calendar.   

Each Annual Forum focuses on a topic of critical importance to all regulators and is facilitated by a leading international speaker. The program is designed to be interactive and engaging, with the aim being to support regulators in sharing their experiences and their lessons learned across domains and jurisdictions.   

Regulators across the world are facing growing demands for action in complex and volatile domains combined with shrinking resources, but help is at hand: many are using technology-driven regulation to break the cycle and tackle the increasingly global challenges they face.

The theme for the 2019 forum was “The Intelligent Regulator” with keynote address by William Eggers.

Including a keynote address by Dr Femke de Vries.
