RDNA tool sections
There is agreement within the Regulatory Excellence Forum that there is a set of generic core skills required by regulators, irrespective of the functions within which they regulate: it is primarily only the underpinning technical and legal knowledge they require that differs across the various functions. This is reflected in the structure of the RDNA self-assessment tool, which is divided into sections. Two cover skills and are generally applicable: core regulatory skills and leadership. The others cover technical or legal knowledge and are specific to particular environmental health and trading standards functions.
Each section is sub-divided into modules, which are available in the form of PDF downloads. These were last updated on 01/11/2011.
