The Insurance Distribution Directive states there is a "15-hour requirement ... as a minimum for anyone involved in ‘insurance distribution’" with regards to Continuous Personal Development.
I am a full-time software developer and an employee of an FCA-regulated Insurance Company. I work on Insurance websites, which we create for our clients to allow their customers to buy insurance products and to allow our clients maintain the policies they sell.
I was told I still have to complete 15 hours of CPD. Under the IDD, would I still be legally required?
We also take mandatory tests, most of which expire yearly, and time spent on this will count towards our 15 hours. These are tests such as GDPR, Data Protection, and Security, among others.
