With these Motions having now been formally approved by our members, the changes to the Bye-laws will take effect from the date the same are formally approved by the Privy Council (in accordance with paragraph 14 of the Charter). The changes to the Rules will take effect from the same date the changes to the Bye-laws are formally approved by the Privy Council.

In accordance with the requirements of Bye-law 30, an updated version of the IFoA's combined Charter, Bye-laws, Rules and Regulations will be published once formal approval of the changes to the Bye-laws is received from Privy Council (as previously advised in the formal Notice of the vote on this matter).
