ICSA: The Governance Institute is the chartered membership and qualifying body for people working in governance, risk and compliance, including company secretaries. With over 120 years' experience, we develop the skills, knowledge and experience of governance professionals through our qualifications, training, high-quality guidance and technical know-how.
ICSA is the home of good governance. Our Governance and Compliance magazine is the UK’s only magazine for governance professionals. Our annual ICSA Excellence in Governance Awards celebrate outstanding achievements in the field of governance, rewarding both organisations and individuals.
We are the only qualifying body for chartered secretaries, whose broad skill set includes law, governance and compliance, and who are fundamental to the smooth running of organisations. In UK listed companies, the role is recognised by the Companies Act 2006 and the UK Corporate Governance Code.
