ICAEW is a partner of The Academy of Experts’ Register of Accredited Accountant Expert Witnesses’ scheme.
The Academy of Experts is an international centre of excellence for experts with a substantial multi-disciplinary membership. It acts as both an accrediting and professional body. The Academy has been setting standards and issuing guidance for expert witnesses for nearly 25 years.
All applicants to The Academy who wish to become Accredited Practising Expert Witnesses undergo a rigorous vetting procedure to ensure standards of excellence are maintained. This process, which all accountants on the Register of Accredited Accountant Expert Witnesses have been through, gives the internationally recognised accreditation as a Practising Expert. The Academy sets both ethical and professional standards which are underlined by Codes of Practice and enforced by a disciplinary committee.
