Another definition of licensure stresses that licensure is intended to protect the public by stating that it is the "process by which an agency of government grants permission to an individual to engage in a given occupation upon finding that the applicant has attained the minimal degree of competency necessary to ensure that the public health, safety, and welfare will be reasonably well protected." The minimal acknowledgement of individuals who practice a particular profession. It is defined as "the recording of professional qualification information relevant to government licensing regulations" and as "the process of making a list or being enrolled in an existing list." ASHP's definition states that the purpose of registration is to keep track of individuals and that it can be used to prevent those "with documented problems from serving as pharmacy technicians." 5
