The Insolvency Practitioners Association (IPA) is a membership body recognised for the purposes of authorising (licensing) insolvency practitioners (IPs) under the Insolvency Act 1986. As the only one of the recognised bodies solely involved in insolvency, we have been at the forefront in:

  • developing professional standards;
  • creating insolvency qualifications;
  • widening access to insolvency knowledge and understanding, and encouraging those involved in insolvency case administration and insolvency-related work to acquire and maintain appropriate levels of competence and skills; and
  • leading the debates on current issues such as regulation and IP qualifications; consumer overindebtedness, advice and solutions; company administrations and the use of “pre-packs” to rescue businesses; and the need for profession-wide procedures and structures for reporting unprofessional, unethical, improper and unfair practices.
