Welcome to the Institute’s policy page. Here you will find our Position Statements, Policies and Consultation Responses relating to a number of different subjects.
The Institute is working on a number of new position statements and these will be released and circulated in due course. If members have any subjects they feel the Institute should be working on please do get in touch.
