Response to Consultation

The Informals’ Committee have now submitted a response to IPReg’s proposed reforms to the examination system.  The Informals’ Committee based the response on the results of the survey run during January, which a staggering 209 of you responded to!  We’re very grateful to all who responded.  Overall, the results indicated that 83.5% of respondents want to retain the Foundation exams, and 74% want to retain the Advanced P3 and P4 papers.  A summary of the results has been published in the February CIPA Journal (pages 69-73).

A copy of our response can be found here.  If you agree with the Informals’ response, please support the response by emailing IPReg. The more emails they receive supporting our response, the more likely it will be that IPReg will take our response on board.  It’ll only take you a minute to drop them an email along the lines of: “I have read the Informals’ response to IPReg’s consultation and I agree with what was written”.

So, if you disagree with one or both of the proposed reforms, please drop IPReg an email (ipreg[at] supporting the Informals’ response before 5pm on 17 March 2014. Please clearly mark your response with the words “Response to Consultation” (e.g. in the subject line).
