Introduction

The Audit and Standards Committee is a key component of NTCA’s corporate governance arrangements.

It is an important source of assurance about the organisation’s arrangements for managing risk, maintaining an effective control environment; reporting on financial and other performance; and for the promotion and maintenance of high standards of conduct by its elected and co-opted members.

It is also responsible for promoting and maintaining high standards of conduct by members of NTCA and its committees. The Committee will also review complaints made against Members in respect of alleged breaches of the Members’ Code of Conduct in accordance with agreed adopted local arrangements.
