The Internal Audit Network comprises approximately 1,300 members across the UK, from banking, utilities, health, IT/communications, insurance/investment, local and national government, to manufacturing, industry, engineering and retail. It provides information and services to members working in internal audit including technical information. These include:


An e-bulletin is published four times per year and e-mailed automatically to Internal Audit Network members. The e-bulletin contains news and feature articles on key issues affecting the internal audit sector, as well as the latest news on relevant ACCA activities, publications and events. 

To see the most recent edition, visit the online newsletters page. 


The Network presents a programme of networking events during the year usually taking place at ACCA's head offices at 29 Lincoln's Inn Fields. 

Attendance at these events is free but, as places are limited, please book in advance using this link. These events will constitute verifiable Continuing Professional Development (CPD) if the content is relevant to an individual's personal development plan. 

ACCA UK also organises an annual internal audit conference. In 2014, this took place in central London on 15 May on the theme of The Assurance Grail. Podcasts of the sessions can be found on ACCA UK's Internal Audit Virtual Learning Centre (please see below for further information about the Virtual Learning Centre). 

The 2015 conference will be held on 13 May 2015 on the theme of Auditing the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. For further information visit the Professional Courses page.
