These principles on physiotherapy regulation have been developed to provide guidance both to already-established regulatory authorities and to those countries where physiotherapy regulation is developing or has not yet been developed. This version is based on feedback from attendees of the INPTRA 2015 conference in Singapore and was updated by the Board of Directors in 2020.
The principles provide specific areas that should be addressed in a regulatory model for physiotherapy.
While not all the principles may be feasible at the current time within a particular jurisdiction, they should provide guidance for future change.
The principles also provide the foundation for the collection of data, evidence and resources related to each of the principles.
The Regulatory Guiding Principles document is also available in Spanish.
