* Ensures customers understand how to comply to the new regime
* Explains what the regulations mean for the manner in which they do business
* Provides guidance on the more difficult parts of the application forms
* Puts the regulations in the context of the common law of agency, which will continue to apply * Highlights the implications of being under FSA regulation (eg enforcement, breaches, duty)
* Addresses key problem areas, particularly where there are boundary issues, e.g. advised/non-advised sales, the difference between administration and performance of a policy, what terms should be included in the policy summary etc.
*Covers what to include and omit in brochures and explanatory booklets
* Discusses the terms to be included in agreements with their counterparts in the distribution chain
