Corporate Profiles


The Financial Reporting Council (FRC) promotes high quality corporate governance and reporting to foster investment. We promote high standards of corporate governance through the UK Corporate Governance Code, and encourage engagement between investors and Boards through the Stewardship Code. We set standards for corporate reporting, audit and actuarial practice and monitor and enforce accounting and auditing standards. We also oversee the regulatory activities of the actuarial profession and the professional accountancy bodies and operate independent enforcement arrangements for public interest cases involving accountants and actuaries.

The Irish Auditing and Accounting Supervisory Authority (IAASA) regulates the profession in the Republic of Ireland.
