Although this association uses the word "Institute", this term is a protected word in the United Kingdom,[1] and use of the title "institute" requires approval from the Secretary of State; failure to seek approval is a criminal offence.[2] It is not clear whether the ICPA has obtained such approval.


The ICPA offers its members the designation of Certified Practising Accountant (ICPA). Fellowship status is offered to members after an extra period of appropriate experience in professional practice.

Membership requirementsEdit

The ICPA is open to practising Accountants whether members of a CCAB body or qualified by experience.
