ICAEW has issued a number of Technical Releases on behalf of the Accountants Joint Parliamentary Committee (AJPC) and Consultative Committee of Accountancy Bodies (CCAB) since 1972.
The AJPC was established in 1946. Its representations were sometimes referred to in articles as the representations of ‘the allied accountancy bodies’. The AJPC was replaced by the Consultative Committee of Accountancy Bodies (CCAB) in 1974.
The Consultative Committee of Accountancy Bodies (CCAB) was established in 1974 and is comprised of the six major accountancy bodies in the UK and the Republic of Ireland. The CCAB website states that the ‘CCAB provides a forum in which matters affecting the profession as a whole can be discussed and co-ordinated and enables the profession to speak with a unified voice to government’.
