When does the Code apply?
In order to undertake the Certified Actuarial Analyst qualification (“CAA Qualification”) run by CAA Global, all Actuarial Analyst Candidates are required to agree to a set of terms and conditions set by CAA Global. These terms and conditions regulate Actuarial Analyst Candidates’ participation in the CAA Qualification. One of the conditions is that all Actuarial Analyst Candidates (other than Student Actuarial Analyst members of the IFoA) shall adhere at all times to the Code and Disciplinary Scheme of CAA Global.
The Code applies at all times to Actuarial Analyst Candidates’ conduct in their day to day work and is taken into consideration where Actuarial Analyst Candidates’ conduct in other contexts could reasonably reflect on the actuarial analyst profession.
Student Actuarial Analyst members of the IFoA shall remain subject to the regulation of the IFoA, including the Actuaries’ Code and Disciplinary Scheme of the IFoA, both of which are available on the IFoA’s website.
How does the Code apply?
Where an Actuarial Analyst Candidate’s conduct is called into question, failure to observe the Code may be taken into account by a Disciplinary Panel.
If you have any questions about your obligations under the Code you may wish to submit your query to the firstname.lastname@example.org.
