As we discussed in a post earlier this year, IIROC recently announced the approval and implementation of core elements of its Client Relationship Model project. However, in light of challenges being encountered by dealers in meeting the September 26, 2012 implementation date, IIROC has announced that that the implementation of the account suitability assessment requirements will be extended to March 26, 2013. For more information, see IIROC Notice #12-0225.
