HRPA regulates and governs the conduct of its registrants, encompassing members and students, in the practice of their profession through the registrants’ adherence to the Rules of Professional Conduct and standards of practice.
At HRPA, the Complaints process and the discipline or capacity process are related but distinct processes that ensure serious concerns about the conduct of registrants are brought to HRPA’s attention, properly investigated and appropriately resolved. They are key to HRPA’s mandate to regulate registrants in the public interest.
The Discipline Committee fulfills a dual role as both the Discipline Committee and the Capacity Committee. The mandate of the Discipline Committee is to hear allegations of professional misconduct, incompetence or incapacity referred to it from the Complaints Committee, deliberate on those matters and apply the appropriate and just remedy to the registrant who is the subject of the allegation(s). Additionally, if HRPA receives information that a registrant may be incapacitated, the Association may investigate the matter and following the investigation apply directly to the Capacity Committee for a determination of whether the registrant is incapacitated.
Discipline hearings are generally open to the public except in exceptional circumstances, for example if the hearing would seriously invade the privacy of a witness.
Capacity hearings are closed to the public.
