Insolvency guidance papers

Insolvency Guidance Papers (IGPs) are agreed by the Joint Insolvency Committee (JIC) and issued by the Recognised Professional Bodies (RPBs) to Insolvency Practitioners to provide guidance on matters that may require consideration in the conduct of insolvency work or in an Insolvency Practitioner's practice.

How do they differ from SIPs?

Unlike Statements of Insolvency Practice (SIPs), which set out required practice, IGPs are purely guidance and practitioners may develop different approaches to the areas covered by the IGPs.

IGPs are developed and approved by the Joint Insolvency Committee, and adopted by each of the insolvency authorising bodies.
