It regulates the workforce against the agreed standards, providing a Code of Conduct and specifying CPD requirements  The local SCHEME provides a framework of development and support for practitioners – to enable them to meet and demonstrate the practitioner standards. The SCHEME coordinates the assessment of practitioners, and the verification of these assessments – by building local capacity in the workforce of UKPHR trained assessors and verifiers, and ensuring that UKPHR processes for registration are followed
