The Insurance Distribution Directive

By October 2018 anyone selling insurance needs to be fully compliant with the rules set out within the Insurance Distribution Directive (IDD).

Our IDD online tutorial is designed to ensure that a good, practical understanding of of the new rules and at the end of the e-learning (90 minutes of learning) the learner will be able to:

  • Describe what the IDD is and the scope of its application
  • Explain the key elements of the Directive
  • Demonstrate that you understand the changes to existing FCA Regulations, especially ICOBS
  • Explain the new category of Ancillary Insurance Intermediaries and differentiate between the method of regulation for each
  • Qualifies for 90 minutes CII CPD (where meeting an individual’s learning objective).

In addition, we have an IDD Knowledge and Competence Programme, which will address the FCA’s proposed new rule SYSC 28.2.3 R (1) relating to professional knowledge and competence (K&C) requirements and allows the learner to achieve their full 15 hour annual CPD requirement
