Registration - when?

 

When did the Financial Service Providers Register open?

Up one level

 

The Financial Service Providers Register (FSPR) opened for applications in August 2010.  There was a transition (implementation) period for financial service providers to meet registration requirements before registration became compulsory for most FSPs on 1 December 2010.

Financial advisers had until 31 March 2011 to register and apply for authorisation (if required).

Any other financial service provider who was not registered by 1 December 2010 is not able to legally provide financial services.  Any providers who are new to the industry will have to be registered before they can legally provide a financial service after that date.
