On 25 March 2020, the FCA updated its web page concerning the Directory of Certified and Assessed Persons. The updated web page states that following the COVID-19 outbreak, the FCA has delayed the publication of the directory of certified and assessed persons, which was due to be published on the FS Register by the end of March, for at least a month. The timing of the launch is now under review and the regulator will provide further updates.
