Consultative Committee of Accountancy Bodies

CCAB A British umbrella group of professional accounting organizations. Owing to the institutional fragmentation of the United Kingdom’s accounting profession, the CCAB was established in 1974 to allow accountants to take united positions in making representations to the British government on regulatory or technical issues. The CCAB is a corporation and its six members are the *Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, the *Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland, the *Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ireland, the *Association of Chartered Certified Accountants, the *Chartered Institute of Management Accountants, and the *Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy.
