Extensions to the register

Since 15 March 2021, we have been working on updating our services on the FSPR. During this development, some services will be provided via interim extensions to the register, which will be eventually integrated into the FSPR.

You can search for specific information relating to some financial service providers via these extensions to the register.

Some financial advisers are recorded on an extension to the register

Leading up to the implementation of the new financial advice regime and the new register, our online services were unavailable for a short time. If you're an individual who had your registration for the ‘Financial Adviser’ service accepted while our online services were unavailable, you are recorded on an extension to the Financial Service Providers Register (FSPR).

Financial advisers who are recorded on this extension to the register, and who have registered on the new FSPR, are eligible for the 2-year competency safe harbour provisions offered in the new financial advice regime. The competency standards are contained in the Code of Professional Conduct for Financial Advice Services .
