Compliance Management Framework

On 19 September 2019, a Compliance Management Framework was approved by Bar Council in order to assist the Bar in reporting to the Professional Standards Authority.

Compliance management is a key component of good corporate governance and business practice at the Bar and a central component of risk mitigation and risk management in the organisation, and in its execution of effective business strategies.

The Compliance Management Framework applies to all areas of compliance for which the Bar must monitor, including in its capacity as a self-regulated entity and as a professional membership organisation.
