The Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment (CISI) has launched a web application for smartphones to help members log CPD activity.
The applications, CISI Publications, give users access to three of its publications, the Securities & Investment Review, Regulatory Update and Investment Management Review.
Users reading any articles then automatically get time added onto their CPD log as unstructured hours through the application.
Simon Culhane, CEO of CISI, says: "The changes to CPD are very significant for the retail financial services industry and for the first time the detail of CPD will be measured, monitored and audited to comply with the FSA requirements.
"This is particularly important in the light of the RDR where there is a requirement for all retail advisers to complete annual CPD."
The CISI Publications app is available here to CISI members for the iPhone or iPad and Android devices.
