From 1 January 2019, FASEA’s new professional standards requirements for financial advisers will progressively replace the minimum training standards in Regulatory Guide 146 Licensing: Training of financial product advisers (RG 146).
RG 146 will continue to apply to financial advisers who are authorised by their Australian financial services (AFS) licensee as an ‘existing provider’ until the new requirements apply to them.
RG 146 will also continue to apply to advisers who are not ‘relevant providers’ –
ASIC will review and update their guidance for advisers who are not relevant providers.
RG 146 will not apply to new entrants to the industry seeking to become a relevant provider from 1 January 2019 or existing advisers providing personal advice from 1 January 2024. They will need to meet FASEA’s new professional standards requirements.
