    Statements of Insolvency Practice

    Insolvency practitioners are required to comply with legislation and with Statements of Insolvency Practice (SIPs).  The purpose of SIPs is to promote and maintain high standards by setting out required practice and harmonising the approach of insolvency practitioners to particular aspects of insolvency practice.  Failure to comply with the required standards, legislation or with SIPs may result in disciplinary action against the insolvency practitioner being taken by the relevant authorising body.

    Current Scottish Statements of Insolvency Practice can be accessed below.
