Advice for scheme associations

Promoting your Professional Standards Scheme

Being recognised with a Professional Standards Scheme does more than simply limit your civil liability. It also shows that your association and its members are a genuine professional community – one that’s committed to delivering ongoing improvements in professional standards and consumer protection.

The following resources are designed to help your association market its Professional Standards Scheme to your members and their clients.

Letter to members: We recommend you send this to all members before your Professional Standards Scheme commences, and to any new members as they join your association. It advises them of your Professional Standards Scheme’s particulars, benefits and responsibilities, and you can edit it as required.

Disclosure statement factsheet: This advises your members of their legal obligation to disclose their limited liability, and explains how they need to do this.
