Treating Customers Fairly (TCF) Committee



The TCF Committee was established with the intention of monitoring industry developments pertaining to the fair treatment of customers and identifying relevant issues that may require further investigation.


The objectives of the committee are to:

  • Establish the means of communication between the TCF committee and members of the profession and
    other stakeholders, including how matters could be raised for consideration by the committee.
  • Ensure effective collaboration between the committee and Practice Area Committees.
  • Serve as the principle conduit for the Actuarial Society of the regulators’ development of a TCF regulatory
  • Continue to address specific TCF matters of concern which have been and continue to be identified.

The intention of the committee is to identify industry wide issues that may require further investigation and then to refer such matters to the relevant Practice Area Committee for more in-depth investigations and feedback. In some cases it may be appropriate to address cases independently of or in addition to the work of the Practice Area Committees.
