The FIDI Professional Cooperation Guidelines document has undergone its third review since it was launched in 2017.
2020 edition key highlight: one version for all users
The 2019 PCGs consisted of two versions of the PCGs: one for FIDI Affiliates (the official document) and one version to be used by other trade associations licensed by FIDI, with all references to ‘FIDI’ and ‘FAIM’ removed.
The PCGs committee concluded that there should only be one version of the document in force, adapted to the use by both FIDI and other trade associations (based on a signed agreement with FIDI). The 2020 edition, as approved by the FIDI General Assembly on 20 October 2020, is consequently applicable without exception to both FIDI and non-FIDI trade associations and their members, at all times.
Call for Action:
- Update your operational manual and company templates with the latest amendments to the PCGs – the 2020 PCGs and its redlined version are available on FIDINET.
- Mitigate risks of misunderstandings in the move process – ask your trading partners to abide by the PCGs
