The global body for professional accountants

ACCA's Regulatory Board was launched in September 2008, bringing together all of ACCA's previous governance arrangements for regulation and discipline into a single entity.

The remit of the Regulatory Board is to provide oversight of any ACCA disciplinary and regulatory activities, and to report to ACCA's Council on the fairness and impartiality of these activities.

Placing oversight of regulation and discipline at ‘arm's length' from the governance of ACCA's other activities helps to reassure stakeholders that ACCA's arrangements are operated impartially, with integrity and in the public interest.

The Board comprises two members of ACCA's Council and six independent ‘lay' appointees - non-accountants - one of whom is Lay Chairman (see Board member profiles for more details).
