Regulatory cooperation efforts (domestic and international)

This initiative is not under a specific formal regulatory cooperation work plan.


The individuals added to the founding members list are the key stakeholders of this regulatory initiative. They will be notified of their eligibility for founding membership by a decision letter mailed from the Enrolment Committee.

Those who have not been successful in their reassessment as part of the implementation of the Wells decision have had the opportunity to appeal their denial of founding membership. All appeal notices continue to be processed by independent Appeal Masters.

Further information

Additional amendments to the Order could be made in the future due to ongoing reconsideration initiatives.
