- Planning for the 2019/2020 CPD cycle
The current CPD cycle started on 1 June 2019 and will end on 31 May 2020. FSPs, KIs, and Reps are advised to put a CPD Plan together in order to manage and plan ahead to ensure that the type and combination of CPD activities undertaken are relevant, contribute to the knowledge, skills and ethical standards of the FSP, its KIs and Reps and addresses any identified needs or gaps, and that the required CPD hours are timeously obtained.
Update the Rep Register
FSPs are reminded to ensure that the Rep Register is correct and up to date. Levies due by FSPs will be calculated based on the information available to the FSCA as at 31 August 2019. It is, therefore, important for FSPs to ensure that their information is correct and to notify the FSCA or make changes on the FAIS ePortal before 31 August 2019.
