people who refuse to sign up will be the ones where the law will come down on them heavily, they will have no protection, but that is up to them
When I have had healing in the past I checked to see if they were registered or not, and l'm sure many other people do this before receiving any treatment! Its in your best interests to do so.
healers and all light workers can offer their services for free but not all want to do this because of giving their time they expect a charge for this.
I have a slightly different take.
With a leap of faith it might be concievable to imagine that self-regulating mediums (or media?) would help to stamp out deliberate fraud.
The problem comes with the nature of mediumship. The accepted principles of (for want of a better term) 'honest mediumship' that a regulator would apply could still be (legally) seen as fraudulent, even if unintentional.
I'm not a legal expert, but when I was writing about the repeal of the FMA my take of the situation was that where, previously, the FDA had not assumed that mediumship was a fraudulent activity in itself but the new legislation does assume mediumship is fraudulent by its nature.
My reading might be off-mark, but that would provide a major stumbling block for any form of self- (or indeed other-) regulation.
