What is the difference between "PS 146" and ”RG 146” training?
The PS in PS 146 is simply an abbreviation for the words "Policy Statement”. The number 146 is merely based on the number of previously designated publications produced by ASIC. A Policy Statement or Regulatory Guide (RG) is a formal document that is produced by the Australian Securities Investments Commission (ASIC).
Policy Statement 146 (PS146) sets out ASIC’s position on Licensing and training requirements of product advisors that operate in the financial services industry in Australia. ASIC renamed all Policy Statements on the 5 July 2007 to Regulatory Guides. Thus PS 146 is now known as RG 146.
PS146 evolved due to the introduction of the Financial Services Reform Act 2001 (FSRA) that is now part of the Corporations Act 2001. PS146 (RG146) consists of 3 main sections that relate to the training standards for finance professionals operating in Australia as follows;.
[RG 146.1] - minimum training standards for people who provide financial product advice to retail clients (training standards).
[RG 146.2] – training standards that apply to a natural person depending on their AFSL and position. and
[RG 146.3] – completion of training courses listed on the ASIC Training Register based on their advisory activities.
