Auditors Enforcement Division

Enforcement Division

The Enforcement Division conducts investigations and will bring prosecutions, if appropriate, against auditors, accountants, accountancy firms, and actuaries where there appears to be misconduct or a breach of the relevant professional standards. The Enforcement Division is led by Gareth Rees QC, who is the Executive Counsel to the FRC.  The division comprises a Case Examinations and Enquiries Team (the intelligence side of the division) and a team of lawyers, forensic accountants, and support staff to ensure that investigations and prosecutions are conducted efficiently and fairly.
