The development of the CRL pathway and our decision to fully withdraw from probate regulation at the end of the year have inevitably put ACCA on a course to cancel its designation as an approved regulator for the reserved legal activity of probate (non-contentious).

On 22 October 2021 we applied to the Legal Services Board (LSB) to commence the de-designation process. The Application and Appendices 1 to 6, including the Notice of Cancellation, is available in the related downloads section of this page. 

The LSB published its Decision Notice on 17 January 2022.
