FSPs, KIs and Reps are reminded that the deadline to comply with the required number of CPD hours for the current CPD cycle has been extended to 31 August 2020.
Those FSPs, KIs and Reps that have already attained the required number of CPD hours for the current CPD cycle will have to wait for 1 September 2020 to begin accumulating CPD activities towards the requirements of the next CPD cycle. In the interim, these 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.

FSPs are reminded to ensure that they renew their PI Cover well before the renewal date to avoid finding themselves in a situation where their PI Cover has expired. Given concerns relating to increased cybersecurity and other risks during the lockdown period, FSPs should take this opportunity to review their risks and ensure that they have the right type of cover and the right amount of cover in place.
