The CDFA Code of Practice


As CDFIs are subject to varying regulatory regimes, none of which cover the whole sector in a clear and transparent way, the CDFA has worked to bring in shared standards to build stakeholder confidence.

We therefore developed a Code of Practice for the UK CDFI sector, with initial mentoring from the FSA. It has subsequently been welcomed by the Office of Fair Trading, public funders, trusts and foundations.
