The FCA has published the Standards for Designated Guidance Providers Instrument 2015 (the Standards).

The Standards were set by the FCA Board on 6 March 2015 for the giving of pensions guidance by designated guidance providers. The FCA will monitor compliance with the standards and if it considers that a designated guidance provider has not complied, it will make recommendations to HM Treasury.

The Standards will come into force on 6 April 2015.
