Chief Executive Recognised in Queen’s Birthday Honours

12 June 2015

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.”
