All new business on Standard Life's wrap and FundZone platforms will be done on an advising charging basis from today.
Adviser charging will also be available on Standard Life Active Money SIPP and Active Money Personal Pension, with an option to continue with customer agreed remuneration-based transactions until the end of the year.
Standard Life Retail International Bond and annuities will accept adviser charging from early December.
Graeme Bold, Standard Life director UK retail RDR, said: "Today marks the start of our transition over to adviser charging to ensure we have made the key changes to our systems necessary to meet the requirements of the RDR well before the deadline. We were early in communicating our plans to our adviser partners and have been working hard to support their transition to adviser charging.
"We're implementing RDR requirements before the end-of-year deadline to help advisers make the operational changes needed to avoid any last minute teething problems which could leave them closed to new business at the start of the new year - typically a busy time for them.
"From speaking to many advisers around the country we know that getting ready early has required additional effort in the short-term. But we believe that effort will now start to pay back as we all prepare for success into next year."
The life comapny said quotations for workplace pension schemes starting in 2013 on a consultancy charging basis also start today.
