CIVEA welcomes ‘exciting’ new appointments to Enforcement Conduct Board.

Responding to the appointments to the Enforcement Conduct Board, Russell Hamblin-Boone, chief executive of the Civil Enforcement Association, said:

“This is the next exciting stage in creating independent, oversight of our sector, which demonstrates that there is a momentum to the industry reforms we have put in place over the last four years. The board members have a mix of skills and experience that will enable them to work with CIVEA as we navigate the incredibly challenging task of assisting local authorities and central government with revenue collection while protecting people hit hard by the cost of living crisis.”



CIVEA played a central role in establishing the Enforcement Conduct Board as part of a ground-breaking collaboration between the civil enforcement and debt advice sector, with the support of the Centre for Social Justice.

CIVEA is the principal trade association representing civil enforcement agencies employing around 2000 certificated enforcement agents that operate in England and Wales. CIVEA represents 40 companies that make up over 95% of the entire enforcement industry.

CIVEA’s members work to enforce civil debt on behalf of local authorities and Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunals Service (HMCTS) including council tax, business rates, parking fines, magistrates’ court fines, employment tribunal awards, child support payments, B2B and commercial rent arrears. This amounts to over half a billion pounds of unpaid taxes and fines recovered each year at no cost to the public bodies themselves. Each year CIVEA members receive over 3.5 million warrants and court orders.
