Upcoming Changes to Fitness & Propriety Assessments

In March 2018, the Isle of Man Financial Services Authority published information on proposed changes to fitness and propriety assessments for all regulated entities and consulted on resulting changes to the Financial Services Rule Book 2016. The Consultation Paper (CP18-01/T12), Consultation Response (CR18-03/T12) and associated documents can be found on the consultation webpage.

The changes to fitness and propriety assessments are due to commence on 1 August 2018.

The Regulatory Guidance, Forms and related documents have now been finalised and can be accessed by clicking on the links below. They are also accessible from the consultation webpage

Regulated entities must use the new forms and processes with effect from 1 August 2018. The Authority’s website will be updated on that day and the old forms will be removed.
