Regulatory compliance affects every aspect of our lives from the streets we drive along to the water we drink and the appliances in our homes.
A 2014 Productivity Commission report saw an opportunity to build capabilities in this area and in response the Government Regulatory Practice Initiative (G-REG) was created, a network of central and local government organisations. The overall goal - improved professionalism, through government working closer together.
G-REG, together with Skills, have developed a series of qualifications to formalise training and improve leadership, culture, and capability in regulatory practice throughout local and central government.
The qualifications provide new foundations of understanding for every level of regulator, developed through consultation with over 20 government agencies. Individuals will also learn the wider context of their actions.

Individuals will improve their capacity to complete regulatory tasks through a stronger foundation of knowledge and understanding.
Investing in people will create enthusiasm and passion for the job, at the same time as growing the overall competency of the organisation.
These qualifications teach a common language and capability applicable to a wide range of regulatory environments. Individuals will be provided with improved career opportunities.
The qualifications have been developed with the goal of strengthening government leadership. Staff will gain the knowledge and skills to work collectively to raise the standard of regulatory practice in New Zealand.
