The CFP Board has changed its rules and procedures to allow disciplinary hearings to be conducted by videoconference on a permanent basis, in light of social distancing guidelines in place for COVID-19. The organization previously required the hearings be done by phone or in person.
The change went into effect last week.
"These amendments reflect the concerns of CFP Board and its Board of Directors for the well-being of our Disciplinary and Ethics Commission members, employees, appellants, and other stakeholders, and reflect the benefits of today's efficient technology," said Kevin R. Keller, CFP Board's CEO.
The CFP Board is currently working on new Procedural Rules that will replace its Disciplinary Rules and Procedures and Appeal Rules and Procedures.
