Compliance with CPD requirements of more than one association

Members based overseas must comply with the CPD requirements of the Actuaries Institute, and any local association of which they are also a member.

To demonstrate compliance with the Institute’s CPD requirements, members can provide a copy of their CPD records kept to comply with their local association’s rules, but should ensure that the correct number of points and type of CPD is completed, as outlined in Professional Standard 1: Continuing Professional Development (PS1).

Mutual recognition agreements

Only mutual recognition agreements between the Actuaries Institute and the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, and the Society of Actuaries in Ireland address CPD compliance.

Mutual recognition agreements with other global actuarial associations neither consider nor exclude members from complying with the Actuaries Institute’s CPD requirements.
