The FSC has created a range of resources to assist with the Design Distribution and Obligations (DDO). Click the headings below to view more information on the resource you require.TARGET MARKET DETERMINATION (TMD) TEMPLATESThe new Design Distribution and Obligations (DDO) come into effect on 5 October 2021, and require product issuers to develop Target Market Determinations (TMDs) for the products they issue to retail clients. The FSC and its members have developed a series of TMD templates for free to FSC Full and Supporting members, at a discounted rate for Associate members and under a paid annual licensing arrangement to non-members. The primary objectives of licensing are: to support broad-based adoption of the templates; to standardise compliance; and improve outcomes for advisers, investment platforms and issuers.

As trusted professionals, we are expected to keep our knowledge and skills up to date, which can often be difficult to manage while performing our daily tasks. The FSC is committed to assisting our members with this through our range of CPD solutions.    What is CPD, and why is it important CPD is the continuation of learning to ensure we maintain and build upon our professional abilities, knowledge and skills to provide clients with the highest quality information and services. It assists us in staying on top of regulatory, technical, and any other relevant information and changes to our industry. CPD is a requirement of many individual membership organisations.   CPD activities and points Below, as a guide, is a list of activities/events that may allow you to claim CPD points with your membership organisations (but you will need to be aware of their requirements yourself in terms of what is allowable under the membership organisation charter AND keep a copy of the event description or conference program from the FSC website). FSC industry working groups 1 point per 1-hour meeting Policy Briefings (in person or via webinars) 1 point per 1-hour event or a pro-rate for partial hours 0.5 point per 30-minute session 0.75 point for a 45-minute session Conferences 1 point per full 1-hour session or a pro-rate for partial hours (for example, a 1.5-hour session will be worth 1.5 points) 0.5 point per 30-minute session 0.75 point for a 45-minute session FSC Board & Board Committee service 1 point per hour or a pro-rate for partial hours (for example, a 1.5-hour meeting will be worth 1.5 points)   Note: The FSC does not issue CPD points directly but provides the above as a guide to assist where attendees have individual requirements for various membership and professional associations. CPD point allocation may vary from the above and depends upon the CPD requirements of the individual organisations with individual memberships, of which you will need to be aware. This is beyond the FSC’s control and is governed by the individual bodies.
