Regulatory resources


The NRCoP offers a variety of national and local educational and networking events throughout the year with the aim of building a network of regulatory practitioners. Planning is well underway for a number of upcoming events, including launches of two new chapters in the Northern Territory and Tasmania, as well as the return in 2023 of the Annual Forum – the highlight of the regulatory calendar! This is a two-day event held in Melbourne every year, though has been put on hold due to COVID-19. As well as this, we will continue running our online webinar series in tandem with our return to face-to-face events, to offer the best of both worlds to our broader community
