Governance

The QCA has a range of policies and supporting processes to ensure we appropriately control and govern our affairs. In line with legislated requirements and best practice, we publish our key corporate policies.

The QCA’s Fee Framework governs how the QCA’s costs are recovered from the organisations it regulates.

The active Fee Framework was reviewed and approved in December 2018.

The most effective protection for a person making a public interest disclosure is the right organisational culture.

The QCA, in line with its values, is committed to creating and sustaining a positive ethical climate with professional and accountable behaviour.

This comes from leadership that openly recognises the significant contribution staff make to our success and strongly encourages disclosure of unethical and fraudulent behaviour.
