Panel members serve on our disciplinary and regulatory committees, ensuring that we have the relevant professional and lay input into our decision making.

From 1 April ACCA will commence recruitment for a number of roles:

  • Accountant (non-lay) panel members;
  • Regulatory Assessors (accountants with audit expertise);
  • Lay panel members;
  • Chairs (legal, lay and non-lay).

The specific application forms and role and responsibilities documents are available to download on the relevant pages, with the guidance and key information for all roles on a seperate page.


All completed monitoring forms will be anonymous and kept entirely separate from your application form. It will be used to help us monitor our equality and diversity.

What does being a panel member involve?

The role of the panel member is integral to supporting ACCA in maintaining high standards of practice and professional conduct through making appropriate decisions at hearings.

Regulatory assessors exercise certain delegated powers and typically do not operate as part of a committee.

If you are interested in serving on our committees, or as a regulatory assessor, and feel that you have the relevant skills and experience we would be delighted to hear from you. ACCA values the independence and expertise of panel members from a diverse range of backgrounds.

Successful applicants will join ACCA’s panel of regulatory and disciplinary committee members, and will serve on committees making independent decisions in the public interest.

To find out more about what it means to be a member of the Panel please see the Q&As from current panel members.
