With less than 50 days before the end of the current CPD cycle, are your hours matching the Fit and Proper requirements?
In terms of the Fit & Proper requirements (BN194), Continuous Professional Development (CPD) for regulatory (FSCA) purposes was officially in April last year.
This means advisors are obliged to perform CPD activities during a CPD cycle, which is a period of 12 months commencing on 1 June of every year and ending 31 May of the following year, starting on 1 June 2018. Provision is also made for proportionate CPD requirements for those who become liable during this cycle.
