The FRC recognises the importance of seeking, listening to and actively considering the views of its external stakeholders when developing its approach and work plans or taking decisions that impact them.

Our Board, Committees and executive teams have access to independent, highly experienced and skilled advisors who provide value insights and technical input to support the FRC’s work.

We also maintain independent decision-making Panels under our enforcement procedures.

The Appointments Committee

The Appointment Committee oversees the appointments and reappointment of members of the independent Tribunal Panel, from which Tribunals are formed. It reviews applications, conducts interviews and appoints the best candidates based objectively on the enforcement procedures’ criteria and the candidate’s qualities, independence, qualifications and experience. The Appointment Committee is independent to the FRC

Enforcement Committee Panel roles

The Enforcement Committee undertakes functions conferred to it under the Crown Dependencies Recognised Auditor Regulatory Sanctions Procedure, the Auditor Regulatory Sanctions Procedure (“ARSP”) and the Auditor General Disciplinary Rules.

This includes considering referrals made to it under those procedures, considering written documentation and representations placed before it and taking decisions on next steps.

All Enforcement Committee roles are currently filled.
