SWW PSB Response to CMA Guidance Consultation


The SWW Professional Standards Board has submitted their response to the Competition and Markets Authority’s consultation on draft guidance for unregulated legal services providers.

Members can read a copy of the PSB’s response here.

As a reminder, the CMA launched the consultation recently in response to its investigation into will writing, online divorce, and pre-paid probate. The deadline for responses is 5 p.m. on 13 June 2024, and members should know that once the final guidance is published later in the year, it will be followed up by a compliance review to monitor its effectiveness, which could result in further action being taken should standards not rise.

We will shortly be publishing a guidance piece on the key themes of the CMA’s draft, along with further instructions on how to respond.
