Independence & taking appointments

A quick reference guide on independence requirements for IPs.

ARITA has been asked by members whether the changes to the law announced in the wake of COVID-19 impact or alter the rules around independence in taking formal appointments.

The short answer is: no, it’s the law.

ARITA does not set the test for independence; the legal requirements set the bar. The ARITA Code of Professional Practice simply reflects those requirements and seeks to educate members to ensure their compliance.

ARITA has produced an easy quick reference guide as a reminder of the requirements.
