Joint Insolvency Committee - JIC
The Joint Insolvency Committee (JIC) develops, improves and maintains insolvency standards from a regulatory, ethical and best practice perspective.

JIC promotes consistency across the profession. It acts as a forum for the discussion of insolvency issues and standard setting. It has responsibility for the development and revision of the Code of Ethics applicable to insolvency practitioners, Statements of Insolvency Practice and Insolvency Guidance Papers. JIC also comments on legislation.

Read the JIC’s rules here.

The committee is made up of representatives from each of the five recognised professional bodies (RPB), each supported by a staff member from the body, five lay members and representatives from the Insolvency Service and the Insolvency Service, Northern Ireland.

The committee meets at least four times a year. Between meetings, the business of the committee may be progressed by sub-groups.

When the JIC reviews a Statement of Insolvency Practice a working group will be set up which will typically comprise a mix of JIC members and other specialists in the subject being discussed. Any revised Statement of Insolvency Practice produced by the working group will usually be subject to a full public consultation with comment invited from the insolvency profession and others interested in the insolvency regime.

The JIC meeting dates for 2018 are:
