The Insolvency Rules Committee (IRC) considers amendments to the rules arising out of a review of secondary legislation, giving their recommendations to the Lord Chancellor.
Appointments and re-appointments to the IRC are regulated by the Commissioner for Public Appointments. This re-appointment has been made in line with the Commissioner’s Code of Practice for Ministerial Appointments to Public Bodies.
IRC members are from the legal and accountancy professions. They provide their services on a voluntary and unremunerated basis.
The re-appointment has been made by the Lord Chancellor in consultation with the Chancellor of the High Court on behalf of the Lord Chief Justice.
