ICAS Regulation Board – Register of Interests
Members of the ICAS Regulation Board must declare any interests that may influence, or may be perceived to influence, their ability to act impartially or objectively in fulfilling their role as a member of the Regulation Board.
Conflicts of interests
There are many different forms of interest which could create a conflict in a matter being discussed by the Regulation Board. Some of the main examples are:
- The involvement of a family member or friend.
- A close association with one of the parties or entities involved.
- The involvement of a current or previous work colleague.
- Any financial interest or impact (however small).
- Any prejudice or benefit which may follow the Regulation Board’s discussion.
Regulation Board members are reminded that potential and perceived conflicts of interest are as important as actual conflicts. It is crucial that the Regulation Board is beyond reproach in the eyes of Members, CA Student Members, Affiliates and Firms, as well as the general public.
