Standards Transition & Applications Update

June 2012

The new Statement on Standards for Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Programs (Standards) will become effective on July 1. As a part of the final transition to the revised Standards, updated applications have been created to replace the former versions.

The application process was temporarily suspended from April 15 through May 1 while the new forms were being prepared and implemented. These forms are now available by initiating the application process through our Interest Form, and are fully in compliance with the new Standards.  “While the online application process is now open, no approvals will be issued before July 1, when the revised Standards become effective since all of the new applications are being reviewed for compliance with the revised Standards, said Jessica Luttrull, CPA, Manager – National Registry.

 “A lot of consideration went into how to best address the process of implementing the revised Standards and how it would affect current and future sponsors,” Luttrull said.  “The transition window was designed to ensure enough time for all current applications to be processed, and for new ones to provide for the additional requirements included in the revised Standards prior to their implementation," Luttrull added.
