What is RG146 Compliance?
For the general advice world, it is business as usual. RG146 general advice is a valid and core part of ASIC’s regulatory framework. Anyone who provides general advice in the course of their role – that is, anyone who works for an AFS licensee and provides advice on financial products or services that does not take into account the individual’s situation – must be RG146 compliant.
Similarly, if you provide personal advice in General insurance (Tier 1 or 2) or Deposit products and non-cash payment products (Tier 2), RG146 compliance should be your accreditation of choice.
RG146 is also an effective learning solution for financial services firms looking to ensure a desired level of base knowledge across selected teams or the wider organisation.
Training of financial product advisers (RG146) continues to apply for certain groups, namely licensees and advisers who:
- Provide general advice only
- Provide personal advice to retail clients in Tier 1 and Tier 2 General Insurance and/or in Tier 2 Deposit Products & Non-Cash Payment Products only
- Are already listed on the Financial Advisers Register and wish to add an additional RG146 specialist knowledge to their existing credentials. Experienced advisers can demonstrate their competence through individual assessment by an ASIC authorised assessor
