You will require this approval if you are an occupational association applying for a scheme to limit the occupational liability of members of your association, improve occupational standards and protect consumers of services provided by members of the scheme. The scheme aims to help improve the standards of professionals that are a part of occupational associations.
An occupational association is a body corporate:
- representing the interests of persons who are members of the same or related occupational groups, including a professional or trade group
- where membership is limited to members of that occupational group.
Occupational liability is a civil liability, payment of damages or potential lawsuit arising directly or vicariously from anything done or omitted by a member of an occupational association in the performance of their occupation.
