This chapter sets out the formal process for regulation of non-medical specialists for public protection. It charts the establishment in 2003 of the UK Public Health (Voluntary) Register as the regulatory body, the initial three year window for retrospective recognition, pending the start of formal training schemes, and the processes by which this was achieved. It outlines the thinking behind registration of specialists with skills predominantly in one sphere of public health and concludes with discussion around the future of specialist regulation as it potentially moves from voluntary to statutory status, requires those registered to demonstrate evidence of participation in formal CPD and prepares processes for revalidation.
