Consultation responses

The Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) responds to consultations on a wide range of issues to support its members and to fulfill our public interest role

The IFoA's focus is on responding to those consultations where actuarial expertise can inform debate, especially when the proposals will also directly impact on actuaries’ working lives and/or there are strong public interest issues involved.

As part of its commitment both to transparency and promoting the actuarial viewpoint on key issues, the IFoA places its responses to public consultations in the public domain.
