ARMA are delighted that the Minister chose the ARMA conference to announce this welcome shift in policy. We have long campaigned for the sector to be regulated and will do all we can to assist the Government in delivering a regulatory regime across the sector
ARMA will respond to the call for evidence on all our behalf to ensure that any regulation is fit for purpose.
