CISPA was formed in the Cayman Islands in 1970 and has evolved into one of the largest professional societies in the Cayman Islands.
On January 2nd 2007, the Public Accountants Law and its associated Regulations came into effect, inaugurating a new era of regulatory oversight of the accounting profession on the Island. Under this regime, CISPA took on the responsibility of licensing accounting practitioners in the Cayman Islands, significantly increasing its regulatory responsibilities.
In 2008 we broadened our global relationships and became an Associate Member of the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC), the worldwide organization representing the accountancy profession. This represented a significant milestone in our history and enhanced CISPA’s reputation in the international community as a respected professional association and regulatory organization.
CISPA operates through its governing Council and various Committees (listed on the left of this page).
CISPA is actively involved in training its members and developing relationships with educational institutions on the island. CISPA is proud to be one of the University College of the Cayman Islands (UCCI) “Partners in Education” and participates in numerous initiatives at Cayman Islands colleges, schools and other educational establishments.
