- Making efficient and appropriate use of social media tools to support its role and increase awareness of the Register;
- Making available an accessible, up to date, user-friendly website;
- Producing bi-annual reports on key activities, trends and performance indicators made publicly available to ensure its activities are transparent, accountable and target-driven;
- Publishing Board members’ and Registrar’s expenses, along with Board member biographies and a Register of Interests; and
- Meeting Government expectations, including the publication of all ARB payments in excess of £500, recruitment guidelines and spending controls.
