About us

The Professional Standards Department of Chartered Accountants Ireland is responsible for the delivery of the Institute’s regulatory and disciplinary obligations which derive both from statute and its own Bye-laws and Regulations.  Key functions include:

  • Professional authorisations;
  • Professional Conduct; and
  • Quality Assurance.

Key committees involved in these processes include the Quality Assurance Committee, the Insolvency Licensing Committee, and the Conduct Committee.

The Institute’s Regulatory Policy Board is responsible for developing Institute policy with regard to regulatory matters and also for approval of various Institute Regulations.

An independent Board, the Chartered Accountants Regulatory Board (CARB), oversees and supervises how the Institute fulfils its regulatory and disciplinary remit, with particular emphasis on impartiality, farness, rigour and integrity.  CARB reports annually on its role to Council and to wider stakeholders.

CARB members' biographies can be accessed here.
