Independent Monitoring Panel

Following the recommendations arising from the 2015 CB:PSB Monitoring Working Group, whose aim was to look at how the independence of the CB:PSB monitoring process could be enhanced, an Independent Monitoring Panel (IMP) was created in 2016. It is important that professional standards are effectively implemented and monitored if the CB:PSB is going to achieve its aims of rebuilding trust, confidence and pride in banking.

The IMP comprises appropriately skilled and experienced members and monitors the effectiveness of CB:PSB standards implementation and the extent to which CB:PSB aims are being delivered. Dr Ian Peters MBE, Chief Executive, Chartered Institute of Internal Auditors, Chairs the Independent Monitoring Panel which will ensure a stronger focus on monitoring and assurance at the CB:PSB Board.

The Members of the Independent Monitoring Panel are: Dr Sarah Blackburn; Zinta Krumins; Cat MacLean; and Karen McArthur.
