The Appointments Board is completely made up of lay members (including the Chair).

The Chair is appointed by the Regulatory Board and is drawn from its membership. The other members of the Appointments Board are independent to both ACCA and the Regulatory Board which helps enable it to take an arms length and unbiased approach to the work of the Appointments Board. 

The Appointments Board is responsible for:

  • the appointment, assessment and removal of panel members (including chairs), disciplinary assessors, regulatory assessors and legal advisers;
  • safeguarding the integrity of ACCA’s disciplinary and regulatory process by ensuring there is an appropriate number of experienced panel members (including chairs). disciplinary assessors, regulatory assessors and legal advisers available at all times.
