Mairi welcomed and explained the FCA’s timetable leading up to regulation’s introduction next summer. She also discussed Golden Charter’s progress, and looked at the range of positive options open to independent funeral directors, while underlining the preparation that has already gone into regulation.

She said: “We’ve been preparing for FCA regulation for a number of years now so this hasn’t taken us by surprise. It’s something that we have been working on for a number of years.

“We’re producing all the materials and support that we think funeral directors will need from us, to help make this as simple a process as possible.”
