Past Consultations

CILEx is Changing Consultation

This consultation marks the latest stage of the CILEx is Changing project. We have previously announced the structural reforms which will improve the Institute's governance, separating out our duties to act in the public interest, in the interests of the profession, and of independent regulation. 

We are now moving on to the more granular changes that will affect both what you see of the Institute and the way in which the Institute interacts with you and its stakeholders. 

The consultation closes at Midday on 11 July 2018. More information on the consultation, and information on how to respond can be found here.
