Qualification update

Testing position

  • Examinations are based on the published syllabus. Syllabuses are available free of charge on the CII website www.cii.co.uk or on request.
  • Candidates will be examined on the basis of law and practice in England unless otherwise stated.
  • The IF1 examination consists of 100 multiple choice questions (MCQs). 2 hours are allowed for this examination.
  • The general rule is that legislative and industry changes will not be examined earlier than 3 months after they come into effect.
  • Candidates must keep up to date with legislative and industry changes that occur.

Solvency II Directive

Solvency II comes into effect on 1 January 2016 and examinations will be reflective of the Directive from 1 May 2016.

The Insurance Act 2015

The Insurance Act 2015 comes into effect on 12 August 2016 and examinations will be reflective of the Act from 1 October 2016.

Insurance Premium Tax

EU referendum

On 23 June 2016, the UK voted to leave the European Union (EU).

The UK Government invoked 'Article 50' of the Lisbon Treaty on 29 March 2017. In doing so, the two-year negotiation period which will result in Britain leaving the EU began. This means that, at the time of publication, the UK's membership of the EU will cease on 29 March 2019.

Until this final 'withdrawal agreement' is entered into, the UK will continue to be a full member of the EU, compliant with all current rules and regulations, and firms must continue to abide by their obligations under UK law, including those derived from the EU, and continue with the implementation of all legislation that is still to come into effect.

The longer term impact of the decision to leave the EU on the UK's overall regulatory framework will depend, in part, on the relationship agreed between the UK Government and the EU to replace the UK's current membership at the end of the 'Article 50' negotiation period.

Please note: The UK decision to leave the European Union will have no impact on the 2017- 2018 CII syllabuses or exams. Changes that may affect future exam syllabuses will be announced as they arise.

Changes to the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) deposit compensation limits come into effect on 30 January 2017.  Examinations will be reflective of these changes from 1 May 2017.

Insurance Premium Tax
