The Actuarial Monitoring Scheme (AMS) is a system for monitoring the work of actuaries. It is designed to improve the effectiveness of actuarial regulation in the public interest, provide meaningful, credible, independent feedback to members and their employers and promote ongoing reinforcement and continuous improvement.
