BS 8577 sets out a framework for managing an adviser organization and effectively supporting the provision of financial advice and planning services. The standard covers the management of a company, incorporating all aspects that support the provision of advice services, such as fair, transparent and professional interaction with clients.

BS ISO 22222 specifies the professional competencies for Personal Financial Planner, with the objective of achieving and promoting consumer confidence by providing an internationally agreed benchmark for individuals offering personal finance services.
