Following the change to the FPA structure in 2017, the FPA Board have been considering how best to amend our Rules so that they continue to provide reassurance to customers when buying a plan from an FPA registered firm.

The FPA are very conscious that this consultation is taking place whilst the Government are also calling for evidence and reviewing what the future of funeral planning regulation could look like. We believe that any changes that happen as a result of the Government consultation will take significant time to implement. With that in mind, it’s crucial that we continue to put customers first, and press ahead with our objectives to ensure they are protected when purchasing a plan from an FPA registered provider.

We look forward to receiving feedback on the proposed changes from all of our FPA registered providers over the coming weeks.
