ISPA is a democratic organisation governed by a Council selected from and representing the various interests of the membership. The Council set ISPA’s strategic objectives and signs-off policy decisions.
ISPA's regulatory activity is coordinated through four subgroups which focus on particular issues of ongoing concern to the membership. The subgroups are a forum for members to share their views and, in consultation with the wider membership, determine how the organisation positions itself.
Council and subgroups are supported by a Secretariat which is responsible for the day-to-day running of the organisation.
