Course Outline

This training course is designed to provide participants with an overview of the UK's new Consumer Duty and its implications for businesses and consumers. The Consumer Duty is a new regulatory framework that aims to improve the way firms treat their customers, placing greater responsibility on businesses to act in the best interests of consumers and to provide them with fair treatment. The course will begin with an introduction to the Consumer Duty, including its background, rationale, and objectives.

The course will then delve into the key obligations and requirements under the Consumer Duty and how they apply to businesses. Participants will learn about the new principles for businesses, including the requirement to take all reasonable steps to avoid foreseeable harm to customers, and the requirement to act in the best interests of customers.
