  2. 2. The Regulatory Backdrop
  3. 3. January 2013 Onwards• Firms to ensure that their advisers obtain an annual Statement of Professional Standing (SPS) as evidence they are subscribing to the new standards• FSA will accredit certain bodies to issue the SPS• These bodies will be responsible for checking advisers’ qualifications and receiving their declarations that they have completed the required continuing professional development• A sample of adviser CPD will be checked each year 3
  4. 4. Complete Annually• Continuous professional development of at least 35 hours, of which at least 21 must be structured• All CPD should be outcome – focussed; should aim to meet the learning needs of the adviser and should be evaluated to ensure needs are met In CP10/14 we set out examples of structured CPD to include attending courses, seminars, lectures, conferences or workshops which require attendance for one hour or more, completing e-learning or other courses provided by distance learning. 4
  5. 5. Will you be ready?• What are your plans for CPD beyond 2013?• Where will you access that?• In a multiple office firm, how will you make that consistent for your statement of professional standing?• How do you develop your paraplanners’ knowledge?• What are the costs involved?• How do you access your current CPD?• How will you make it specific, measurable and auditable?• Are there aspirations to do more than 35 hours?• Who should you liaise with from a compliance or HR perspective beyond your normal contacts? 5
