Request for help from FHRD in Malta

Dear EAPM members,
Hope all is well and greetings from Malta.

We at FHRD (Foundation for Human Resources Development) are in the very initial stages of starting the process of having the HR practice in Malta warranted. We would like to ask if any of you have such a system in your own individual country. If positive, we would be grateful if you could maybe guide us a bit on how such an HR warrant works within your country, the pros and cons of such a system and share your experiences with us.  

I thank you for your time and consideration. 

Kind regards,
Marvin Cushieri
If anyone can assist Marvin, please contact him directly at FHRD. His email address is mcuschierieapmatfhrdeapmdotorg
