Corporate governance

PSAA’s articles of association and its corporate governance framework set out the company’s responsibilities and required procedures, ensuring we are governed to a high standard.

The articles of association were originally approved by the PSAA Board on 30 March 2015 and registered with Companies House in May 2015. Updated articles were approved in January 2020 to reflect a change to the company’s objects following specification as an appointing person and the transition to this role.
