14-307MR Disallowance of FOFA regulations
ASIC notes the Senate has disallowed the Corporations Amendment (Streamlining Future of Financial Advice) Regulation 2014.
ASIC will take a practical and measured approach to administering the law as it now stands following the disallowance of the Corporations Amendment (Streamlining Future of Financial Advice) Regulation 2014. We will take into account that – as a result of the change to the law that applies to the provision of financial advice – many Australian financial services (AFS) licensees will now need to make systems changes. ASIC recognises this issue may arise in particular areas, including fee disclosure statements and remuneration arrangements.
We will work with Australian financial services licensees, taking a facilitative approach until 1 July 2015.
