Dear All,

With consultants being used more and more to provide data to support enterprises that affect the environment and the public. There seems to be no form of regulation to superintend their work and qualifications. As most other professions and trades (even tanning salon operators} are required to have some minimum level of qualification and professional standards, should not consultants also be subject to the same?

Reports produced for a consultants' client regularly affect large portions of the populace, should they not be placed on a public register for public consultation and future reference?
