Recognised professional bodies

350.—(1) The Department may by order subject to negative resolution declare a body which appears to it to fall within paragraph (2) to be a recognised professional body for the purposes of this Article.

(2) A body which—

(a)has an established place of business in the United Kingdom; and

(b)is—

(i)by an order under section 391(1) of the Insolvency Act 1986(1), declared to be a recognised professional body for the purposes of that section; or

(ii)a Northern Ireland professional body with members which are from Northern Ireland, being a body corresponding to a body such as is mentioned in head (i);

may be recognised if it regulates the practice of a profession and maintains and enforces rules for securing that such of its members as are permitted by or under the rules to act as insolvency practitioners—

(aa)are fit and proper persons so to act, and

(ab)meet acceptable requirements as to education and practical training and experience.

(3) References to members of a recognised professional body are to persons who, whether members of that body or not, are subject to its rules in the practice of the profession in question; and the reference in Article 349(2) to membership of a professional body recognised under this Article is to be read accordingly.

(4) An order of the Department under this Article has effect from such date as is specified in the order; and any such order revoking a previous order may make provision whereby members of the body in question continue to be treated as authorised to act as insolvency practitioners for a specified period after the revocation takes effect.
