This is a significant milestone in the history of the Institute, as we join the ranks of professional bodies such as accountants, lawyers and bankers.
Sir Alan Yarrow, Chartered FCSI(Hon), Chairman, said: “It is very pleasing that the CISI, which has built an enviable reputation for professionalism in the sector, has had its position as a pre-eminent professional body endorsed by the award of a Royal Charter. I would like to thank all of our members and corporate members for their commitment to high standards in qualifications, continuing professional development and the promotion of integrity and ethics: the foundation stones of our application to the Privy Council.”
