Similar to most professional trade organizations, the ICAEW helps to ensure that potential employers receive assistance from ACA- and FCA-certified accountants by insisting that its members demonstrate a certain level of expertise. In the United States, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants performs a similar service, although one needn't be a member to be designated a certified public accountant (CPA).
