Changes to CPD
From 1 November 2023, ICAEW's CPD Regulations are changing and will require minimum number of hours of CPD, as well as at least an hour of ethics training each year. Find out more

ICAEW's revised CPD Regulations affect some individuals who are not ICAEW members but who are authorised or licensed by ICAEW as:

  • a responsible individual for the signing of statutory audit reports; or
  • a key audit partner for the signing of local public audit reports; or
  • an insolvency practitioner; or
  • a probate authorised individual; or
  • a licensed practitioner under the Licensed Practice Scheme.
