What are ANZIIF's pathways for compliance 

New Zealand General Insurance Brokers can rely on ANZIIF's compliance solution to demonstrate the standards of competence, knowledge and skill prescribed in the Code of Professional Conduct for Financial Advice Services which comes into effect from 15 March 2021.

ANZIIF has a number of compliance pathways for brokers based upon their experience and qualifications. Regardless of the chosen pathway, all brokers will also need to complete ANZIIF's new bridging unit.

To obtain compliance through ANZIIF, you have three possible pathways.


If you have completed study towards, or hold an ANZIIF Diploma of Insurance Broking, our team will be in contact with your tailored pathway.

Everyone's tailored pathway will include the ANZIIF bridging unit which covers off the new code of conduct standards. 

See the FAQ's for compulsory units that make up the Adviser Compliance. 

Please contact [email protected] if you have further questions or you have not heard from us with your tailored pathway.

 Pathway 2  

If you are an experienced insurance broker without a qualification then you can apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). 

This ANZIIF learning pathway allows skilled brokers to receive accreditation based on demonstrated capability. RPL to the full suite of competencies reduces formal studies to just the new components required under the code - covered in ANZIIF’s new bridging unit completed online.

ANZIIF has extensive experience in assessing people via RPL and works with individuals to assist them in preparing for the assessments - essentially a portfolio of experience and an interview conducted by ANZIIF.  Click to learn more about RPL

The Adviser Compliance qualification will be delivered fully online through interactive, explorative learning in 5 or 7 week units.
