As like many other professional bodies across the world, ICAP requires from its members to complete continuing professional development (CPD) throughout their careers.
This requirement is made to ensure that our members are always highly updated and maintain the required sets of skills and knowledge which is needed to survive in today's competitive and dynamic business environments. CPD is a pure reflection of the fact that learning is a life-long process!
All our new and old active members are required to achieve a specific level of CPD which is quantified in hours. The quota is set on annual basis and the members are required to complete their CPD hours before deadline. This is to enforce acquisition of latest and most updated knowledge among our members as the business industry look at the members of any professional body with an expectation for updated knowledge and skills and will not accept any member of a professional association that does not conform to some form of CPD.
Therefore, it is the sole duty of the members to develop their skills and knowledge throughout the career.
We put our best efforts to ensure that our members adopt the highest standards of professionalism and therefore design top quality programs that comply with the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC).
The Institute of Chartered Accountant of Pakistan (ICAP) was established on 01 July 1961 with the prime objective of regulating the profession of accounting in Pakistan. It was due to the vision and the foresight of our predecessors that today we are the premier regulatory body for the development and regulation of the Profession in the Country.
ICAP has indeed come a long way from small band of members to currently above five thousand professionals. Today our professionals are recognized and respected globally for their technical expertise and adherence to ethics and integrity.
The repute and the standing that ICAP commands today are due to the determination, courage and loyalty shown by the members and the leadership. The Institute was envisioned and established to regulate the accountancy profession in general, particularly the auditing profession and is responsible for imparting Chartered Accountancy qualification in the country. ICAP offers great services to the nation by fostering and nurturing the young talent for leadership through its robust education and examination system throughout the years producing high caliber professionals.
In addition to this, ICAP plays its role in strengthening the regulatory framework in Pakistan through working in cooperation with important policy making institutions and regulators including the State Bank of Pakistan, the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan, the Federal Board of Revenue and other Ministries.
Simultaneously, the Institute has firmly established itself as a premier institution which produces qualified accountants, who are not only in high demand within the country but have also made a mark for themselves outside Pakistan.
This journey of ICAP has been a test of endurance. The institute has come a long way from a very small community of Registered Accountants to what it is today a professional body of more than 7000 members.
