ORC TO STRIKE OFF 65 REGISTERED PROFESSIONAL BODIES IN DEFUALT BY 30TH JUNE, 2024

The Office of the Registrar of Companies (ORC) wishes to inform the Executive Council Members (Presidents, Secretaries, Chairpersons and any other name designated) for the under-listed Professional Bodies registered with the Office of the Registrar of Companies that legal processes will commence to clean up the Register with effect from 30th June, 2024.

2. This exercise has become imperative due to failure by these Professional Bodies to file their Annual Accounts and update their Certificate of Membership in accordance with Section 16 of the Professional Bodies Registration Act, 1973, NRCD 143 with the Registrar of Professional Bodies.

3. Following a meeting with the Executive Council Members of all registered Professional Bodies, the Registrar of Companies (ROC) who is the regulator of Professional Bodies, directed those who had been in default for more than two years and had not updated their members’ certification to do so by the end of December 2023 or risk their name being struck off the Professional Bodies Register in accordance with section 11(b) of the Professional Bodies Act 1973(NRCD 143).

4. Currently, Sixty-Five (65) out of Ninety-Two (91) registered Professional Bodies (PBs) have not complied with the directive of the Registrar of Professional Bodies to renew their Professional Bodies Certificates and that of their members and therefore have been found to be in default.

5. Nonetheless, Professional Bodies in default can still be in good standing if they file their Annual Accounts by 30th June, 2024 being the deadline for the submission of Annual Returns to the Registrar of Professional Bodies. The filing should be accompanied by a copy of the Audited Accounts of the Body, updated list of its Members and any changes made to its Constitution before the removal of defaulters from the Register which commences at the end of June 2024 in accordance with section 15 (1)(2) and 16(1)(2).

6. In spite of the above, the Office of the Registrar of Companies will continue its rigorous sensitization and public education on the need for registered Professional Bodies to be in good standing with the Office of the Registrar of Companies.

7. Please find attached the list of sixty-five (65) registered Professional Bodies in default as at 22nd April, 2024.
8. Professional bodies that use “CHARTERED” as part of their names should attach copies of the Charter granted to those bodies by the Parliament of the Republic of Ghana when filing their Annual Accounts and updating their Certificate of Membership if they have it. All those who do not have the Charter granted by Parliament should take steps to have this done within the shortest possible time.

9. For further information, please contact Mr. Jones Nathaniel Ansah, Head of Companies of the Office of the Registrar of Companies (ORC) on 0244369143 or call the Office on 0302666081, WhatsApp/Telegram on 059525774
