Chief Executive of the Chartered Institute of Internal Auditors, Dr Ian Peters, has been awarded an MBE for services to regulatory reform and in recognition of his work as a member of the Government's Regulatory Policy Committee (RPC).
The RPC is an independent advisory non-departmental public body which provides scrutiny of the evidence and analysis supporting regulatory proposals and their impact on business and civil society. Peters was a member from the committee’s inception in 2009, standing down earlier this year. He was previously a member of the Better Regulation Commission from 2000-2007.
Commenting on the award, Peters said: “It has been a privilege to be part of a body which plays such an important role in providing a robust and impartial check on the purpose and effects of proposed government regulatory activity. I am delighted to receive this recognition of my contribution to regulatory reform, which is essential if we are to achieve sustainable economic growth.”
