This survey seeks to map the structures, tasks and effects of professional regulation of doctors across Europe. The objective is to consolidate a detailed evidence-base for CPME’s position on professional regulation to strengthen the argument against de-regulation driven by economic motives.

In line with CPME policy this exercise does not aim to recommend one regulatory system over another, but will rather focus on principles which are transferable to different systems and respect socio-cultural traditions of professional regulation.

The CPME Survey on doctors’ regulation is available here.
