Consultation Responses

Consultation Responses

We regularly respond to consultations issued by other organisations. CILEx may also respond to consultations representing the membership interests. Wherever possible CILEx Regulation and CILEx will make a joint response. Members of CILEx who wish to make comments in relation to regulatory matters should contact CILEx Regulation. CILEx Regulation will take those comments into account in making its response.
