It has three membership grades: GradICSA for members that pass the exams, Associate for higher level members and Fellow for more senior members. It has 37,000 members and was founded in 1891. The Institute was granted a Royal Charter in 1902.
ICSA is one of eleven professional bodies whose members are allowed by the Charities Act 2011 to conduct independent examination of charities whose gross income exceeds £250,000 but is not otherwise subject to statutory audit.
