Your Accredited Body

Accredited Body Status

As a result of the forthcoming merger between the IFP and the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment (CISI), the IFP will cease to be an FCA Accredited Body from the 1 November 2015.

If you currently hold a SPS from the IFP, this will remain valid until the expiry date printed on it, even if this date occurs after 1 November 2015.

Members transferring their membership to the CISI will be able to renew their SPS with CISI when their SPS is due for renewal.

Please note all qualification and gap-fill records held with the IFP will be transferred and stored with CISI in accordance with Data Protection Principles.

Please email if you are planning to apply or renew your SPS.
