The 10th ICPS International Regulatory Affairs Symposium will focus on the theme 'Smart Regulation in a Challenging Global Landscape'. 

For those wishing to complete the five-day Professional Certificate, this will incorporate the high-level Symposium and three subsequent days of intensive training. Delegates can opt to attend the Symposium on its own, or to attend the full five-day event.

The Symposium (19th - 20th November 2018)

In an increasingly changing global landscape, the emergence of new industries, sectors and markets has presented new challenges to regulators. Regulators from all industries must consider how laws and regulations will impact rapidly growing industries and technologies. How do we regulate the risks of new innovations without damaging their full potential?

In order to cope with these new challenges, regulators now have to think smart about how they plan, implement or reform new and existing regulations. During these stages, it is vital for regulators to cooperate with stakeholders to promote fair regulations that assist with both developing and protecting the economy. This Symposium will explore new initiatives and ideas in regulation and how they can assist in overcoming the current challenges in a changing global environment.

Areas to be discussed include:

  • Latest Initiatives in Smart Regulation
  • Smart Regulation with Limited Resources
  • Collaborating with Stakeholders for Smarter Regulation
  • Utilising Impact Assessments to Inform Future Regulation
  • Regulating Data: Challenges in regulating data sensitivities and how to overcome them

The Professional Certificate (19th – 23rd November 2018)


Following the symposium, the Professional Certificate in International Regulatory Affairs will build on the issues raised in the first two days, exploring the subject matter in greater depth and providing participants with the essential skills required to deliver better regulation. Through examining the strategies and approaches to reforming regulation, participants will examine ways to adopt different approaches in their organisation whilst ensuring that regulatory principles are proportional, accountable and targeted.

Through discussions with leading regulatory practitioners, participants will leave equipped with a comprehensive knowledge of how to build capacity and support structures, reduce administrative burdens and evaluate the overall impact of regulatory reforms.

The three-day programme is designed to build upon the issues raised throughout the symposium through discussions with peers and subject specialists. Participants who attend the full programme will be eligible to obtain the Chartered Management Institute Professional Certificate in Management and Leadership. Please visit the programme page for further information.


What is involved?

To obtain the Professional Certificate in International Regulatory Affairs delegates will need to have completed the five-day event and two written tasks after the duration of the course. Upon completion of the course and subsequent successful completion of CMI written tasks, the successful candidate will be awarded a Level 5 CMI certificate in Management & Leadership showing the CMI units achieved. The successful candidate will also receive a transcript from the International Centre for Parliamentary Studies certifying their specialisation in International Regulatory Affairs. The CMI is the only chartered professional body in the UK dedicated to promoting the highest standards in management and leadership excellence. The professional qualifications offered are internationally recognised and sought after. 

Why attend?


High Profile Speakers

The Symposium promises an internationally recognised line-up of leading figures and expert speakers who will offer an invaluable insight into the latest initiatives and developments in the field of regulatory affairs. As well as hearing key presentations, there will also be ample opportunities for delegates to engage in interactive discussion and debate.


Networking

Time will also be allocated – both through open floor discussions and during breakouts for lunch and refreshments – to share experiences and ideas related to regulatory affairs with the course’s speakers and fellow participants, allowing delegates to acquire a greater understanding of international best practice. Symposium delegates will also be invited to attend a drinks reception to further discuss the pertinent issues raised throughout the day in a more informal and less structured environment.
