Legislation, Registration and Standards

The Committee will do this by advising on matters relating to:
• Development, maintenance and review of the WCO’s annual survey on scope of practice, and analysing and disseminating the results
• Support of the biennial World Congress of Optometry featuring international experts who address human resources, economic, interdisciplinary and educational dimensions
• Development and implementation of international standards of clinical practice
