The High Court Enforcement Officers Association is backing the creation of a new enforcement oversight body proposed by the Centre for Social Justice (CSJ).
In a new report entitled ‘Taking Control for Good’, the CSJ has announced plans for a new body – the Enforcement Conduct Authority (ECA), which would provide independent, fair and formal supervision of enforcement.
Alan J. Smith, Chair of the High Court Enforcement Officers Association, said: “We already have a Code of Best Practice which our members are expected to adhere to, so this is a logical next step. It’s great that the whole concept and remit of the proposed Enforcement Conduct Authority has been co-designed by the debt relief sector, working together alongside the CSJ and the enforcement profession. We’re very supportive.”
“As an Association we support the aims of the ECA and will continue to work with the CSJ on the ECA project alongside other voices from the debt relief sector and enforcement profession.”
