Introduction of a Condition

Consideration was given as to the best method to introduce a mandatory PMC requirement.

Rather than introducing additional categories of practising certificates it was decided that the most effective and easiest application of the requirement would be through the imposition of a condition on local practising certificates held by practitioners who do not practise in the capacity of:
  • a sole practitioner;
  • a principal of a practice;
  • a legal practitioner director of an incorporated legal practice; or
  • a partner in a multi-disciplinary practice;
stipulating that the practitioner cannot practise in those capacities until the successful completion of an approved PMC and the removal of the condition from the holder’s local practising certificate.
