Our Better Regulator – Professional Bodies Roundtable took place today (September 23) at CISI (Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment) and was well attended by delegates from a diverse range of professional bodies.
Rebecca Aston, Head of Professional Standards at CISI, opened the roundtable which was chaired by Protect’s Head of Policy, Andrew Pepper-Parsons, who led a lively discussion and debate. Delegates shared their experiences of whistleblowing procedures, challenges encountered, and what would improve processes.
Delegates discussed what could be done if whistleblowing concerns are ignored or there is a failure to deal with them, and whether the Prescribed Regulator reporting duty should be rolled out to all professional bodies.
Thank you to all delegates for attending and being such engaged and open delegates, and special thanks to Rebecca Aston at CISI for hosting the event.
Protect hope to summarise and share a summary/guidance from this and our Prescribed Regulator roundtable held in April.
