Individual Accountability Framework Update


IoD Briefings Series: Sponsored by Accenture

Join us for this webinar on the Central Bank of Ireland’s (CBI's) Individual Accountability Framework (IAF) on Thursday, 14th December 2023. The Framework was published on Thursday, 16th November 2023.

Following a three month consultation process, to which IoD Ireland responded on behalf of members, the CBI has published a Feedback Statement and issued Regulations and Guidance to firms on the IAF. The Guidance provides clarity regarding the CBI’s expectations for the implementation of three aspects of the framework: the Senior Executive Accountability Framework (SEAR), the Conduct Standards, and certain aspects of the enhancements to the Fitness & Probity regime.

In this webinar we will explore the key changes in the finalised Regulations and Guidance versus the original drafts. The webinar will also consider the implementation of the final Regulations and Guidance for Boards and senior executives of financial services institutions.

The webinar will include presentations from Josh Hogan, Partner, McCann FitzGerald LLP, and Donal Hamilton, Partner, Employment, Pensions and Incentives Group, McCann FitzGerald LLP.

The IoD Briefings series is kindly sponsored by Accenture
