Whilst various requirements exist such as code of ethics, body of knowledge, training structure, defined period of experience, etc., the most vital is that there is public trust and reassurance derived from quality insurance owned and delivered through the professional body of the professionals themselves, and not any external quality assurance group however competent that group is.
