Regulations are sometimes outdated, having been put in place one or two decades earlier when the industry offered insufficient qualifications. When regulations are up for review APAN works closely with government agencies and health departments providing up-to-dated comprehensive reports, clarifying current industry needs and identifying restrictions that no longer serve our industry. While regulatory processes are usually very slow, it is imperative that our industry has a strong voice. APAN’s contribution to this area is consistent and we relentlessly pursue recommendations and policies that best serve our industry. We are highly committed to this cause.
