Updated regulations and guidance are now available on the website in the Members and Professional Standards sections website and members should be aware that these will apply from 1 January 2011. They have been structured on the same principles of relevance, flexibility and reasonability as the regulations currently in force and the minimum annual requirements are unchanged.
Members will be asked to make an annual declaration that they are undertaking their CPD from the end of the 2011 period. The arrangements for CPD record submission - upon request only - remain unchanged.
The objectives of revising the regulations and guidance are to simplify, modernise, reduce administration and place more emphasis on members’ responsibilities for their own career development and keeping their technical knowledge up-to-date.
The updated CPD Regulations and Guidance can be viewed here. Your comments are as always welcome.
