Respond to open consultations
We are offering our regulated firms and insolvency practitioners the opportunity to respond to a wide range of consultations. Further information about open and closed consultations, as well as responses to consultations are available at icaew.com/regulatoryconsultations.
We invite you to respond to the following consultations if applicable to your area of work:
Anti-money laundering webinars
In case you missed it, watch the recording of our second anti-money laundering webinar focusing on when you need to obtain a Defence Against Money Laundering request and what constitutes tipping off.
The third webinar in the series, focusing on client due diligence, will take place on 20 October at 11am. Find out more about the event and register.
Update to the annual return
The annual return has been updated. New guidance notes and updated FAQs are available. The changes can be reviewed in this schedule of amendments and relate to the revocation of our Irish recognised accountancy body status, as well as other small amendments and some clarifications to questions relating to voting rights.
Changes to the Minimum Approved Wording Policy
Following a consultation process earlier in the year, we are making changes to the Minimum Approved Wording Policy. The changes clarify the extent of cover for cyber-related claims in policies of insurance. View the changes
