Assessment and Vetting of CPD Programmes for Insurance Intermediaries

Under the Insurance Intermediaries Quality Assurance Scheme (IIQAS), insurance intermediaries, their responsible officers/chief executives and technical representatives (collectively termed as “insurance intermediaries”) are required to comply with the requirements of the IIQAS Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Programme.

The objective of the CPD Programme is to ensure that insurance intermediaries continue to possess updated knowledge and professional competence in providing advice and service to policy holders and potential policy holders.

The HKCAAVQ has been appointed by the Insurance Authority as the sole assessment authority for its CPD Programme. 

Assessment of CPD activities under IIQAS

Providers who wish to offer may submit their applications to the HKCAAVQ for assessment one month before the commencement of the activities.

All approved CPD activities are subject to re-assessment on an annual basis. Re-assessments not submitted within six months of expiry will be treated as new applications for assessment if submitted after that time.

Provided that all relevant information is submitted, CPD activity providers will normally receive a formal notification of the assessment or re-assessment results from the HKCAAVQ four weeks after the date of application.
