Update on Statutes Reform

On 10 February 2016, Her Majesty the Queen was pleased to approve the Order which put in place the amendments to the 1751 Royal Charter and its Supplementary Charters as presented to and endorsed by Fellows at the EGM on 3 December 2015. All elements therefore of the revised Royal Charters and the new Statutes, as  are now fully in force. A copy of the Statutes, as approved by the Extraordinary General Meeting on 3 December 2015, and of the version of the Charter now given Royal approval, can be found in the “Governance” section of our website.
