Conduct Review Commission

The Conduct Review Commission (CRC) helps us safe guard the professional reputation of our members, and provide added protection to consumers.


The CRC is an independent body put in place to ensure members are held accountable to the FPA Code of Professional Practice and Code of Ethics. The CRC plays a vital role in regulating the conduct of FPA members and upholding the highest ethical standards within the financial profession.

The key functions of the CRC are the following:

  • Determining whether disciplinary proceedings should commence against members
  • Hearing and determining complaints against members in respect of breaches
  • Hearing and determining appeals.

CRC Panel members

The CRC is made up of experienced members in the financial planning profession, relevant experts and members of the public.  The CRC may comprise up to 15 members, including the Chair and a Deputy Chair(s). The role of CRC Chair is typically held by a legally trained professional.
