Professional Body Accreditation
To gain ONF accreditation, your organisation must be registered with those professional accountancy bodies of which it employs qualified members and/or students, for both Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and Training purposes.
The One NHS Finance National Accreditation board have agreed that accreditation with CIPFA will no longer be compulsory under criterion 1.3.5, which covers the requirement for professional body accreditation. This was decided following the introduction of a fee by CIPFA to apply for their professional accreditation. Organisations wishing to secure CIPFA accreditation are still encouraged to do so.
