Program overview

In this program you will develop a shared understanding of regulatory language and concepts, leading to a common body of knowledge to better provide advice and guidance across a range of regulatory activities. This will see greater efficiency and effectiveness of regulatory activities and interventions across the APS, through improved connectivity between the various regulatory functions, roles and activities, across the regulatory spectrum. Through an exploration of contemporary regulatory theory and applied learning experiences, you will learn how to improve connectivity and interoperability between different regulatory and non-regulatory agencies.
