Organisations and instruments of self-regulation play an important role in the achievement of properly working youth protection. But as the experts' survey results from YPRT revealed, the differences in knowledge about and trust in self-regulation in the European countries are tremendous.

Therefore the project has set-up a database on self-regulation. In the table below organisations icon for organisation and instruments icon for instrument can be found in alphabetical order. When clicking on the header of a column the order changes according to the chosen scope. Clicking on the title leads to the chosen entry providing more detailed information and a short description of the organisation or instrument.

The database is work in progress. It will be updated continuously and completed step by step. If you know of any organisation or instrument of self-regulation not listed below, we would highly welcome your input via email to kunze@yprt.eu
