The Civil Enforcement Association (CIVEA) is the association representing over 2,000 enforcement agents operating throughout England and Wales.
It is run by our corporate members who elect the Executive Council.
By working with the Ministry of Justice alongside other government departments and agencies we ensure a fair deal for enforcement agents – whether an individual or a company.
Our members help shape new policies and share best practice for the benefit of the industry as a whole. For instance, CIVEA was central in developing a clear and straightforward framework for our industry as part of the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement (TCE) Act 2007 and amended through the Crime and Courts Act 2013.
Members also participate in our independent complaints procedure to give clients the confidence they require.
