Learn more about the work of ICAEW's Trust & Ethics team and the expert groups who support us.

Our work

Our work includes helping government and regulators make good regulation, in the public interest. We do this through participating in relevant regulatory initiatives and in our responses (or ‘representations’) to consultations on proposed regulatory change.

We also provide guidance to our members on relevant aspects of law and regulation and make a variety of resources available to our members and the wider public to help them understand and apply relevant law or regulation.

Please follow the links on our landing page for more information, including on:

  • our technical releases and other guidance
  • our latest or key publications
  • our representations

Expert groups

We are supported by the following ICAEW Technical Committees:

  • Ethics Standards Committee
  • Business Law Committee
  • Insolvency Committee

We are also supported by sub-committees and working groups with insights into specific areas of law and regulation, including company law, workplace pensions, charities, and data protection.

In total we benefit from input from over 100 expert individuals without whom our work would not be possible. If you are interested in joining us, please contact the relevant member of staff at the above addresses.
