Designated Professional Body (DPD) Scheme Consultation


To comply with the EU’s Insurance Distribution Directive (IDD), we are proposing some changes to the rules and guidance of our Designated Professional Body (DPB) scheme. For this reason, we invite all the profession, and other interested stakeholders, to contribute to this consultation and provide us with their thoughts on the potential impact that these changes could have. While the Directive limits our adoption to some extent, all comments received will help inform the final changes made to the Rules.

Commenting effectively:

When commenting on this RICS consultation draft, please make sure you:

Comment only on the individual section to which your comment refers, rather than inserting all comments into one section. As responses are collated through an automated system, this will help us to present all comments to the working group in chronological order avoid leaving comments that do not reflect a point of view (e.g. inserting 'okay' across a number of sections); and keep comments as brief and to the point as possible.

If you require further assistance or information regarding accessing/ contributing to this consultation please contact Ellie Scott [].

This consultation will close on Thursday 31 May 2018.

We apologies for the short time frame for the consultation period, but this is due to time restrictions beyond our control.
