Our FCA Insurance Intermediaries Manual can be browsed online or sections of content or commentary can be downloaded in Microsoft word or PDF. There is also the flexibility to ‘customise’ a download suitable for your engagement. For every new assignment, you will need to navigate to our website to obtain the most up to date version.
The principal technical changes in these updates relate to:
The IFPR is effective from 1 January 2022. The revised suite of Quality Management Standards (ISA 220, ISQM 1 and ISQM 2) are effective from 15 December 2022, with early adoption permitted.
Changes to ISA 240 The auditor's responsibilities relating to fraud in an audit of financial statements, and ISA 315 Identifying and assessing risk of material misstatement are both effective periods commencing on or after 15 December 2021. Although these do not directly impact the FCA Insurance Intermediaries Manual, there have been changes made to the references of some planning documents in this manual.
