Consultation: Proposed changes to the Actuaries’ Code

As well as changes to the Actuaries' Code (the Code) itself, the proposals include the introduction of an accompanying Guide to assist Members in understanding their professional and regulatory responsibilities under the Code

The Code applies to all IFoA members and, given its importance in our regulatory framework, we encourage you to read the proposals and provide us with your views.

The deadline for responses is 17 January 2018.
