The FSA is running a series of RDR roadshows throughout England to help firms prepare their businesses ahead of the January 2013 deadline.
The half-day roadshows begin in April and run until September. They are aimed at financial advisers from smaller firms who want greater clarity about what the retail distribution review rules mean in practice.
The regulator says the roadshows will provide advisers with an overview of the rules on adviser-charging, advice labelling and professional standards.
The sessions aim to give advisers a clearer understanding of how the changes will affect them, so they can adapt their business model to make it RDR-compliant.
Places are limited to one person per firm and cost £20. Advisers can choose to attend either a morning or after- noon session.
The roadshows will visit London on April 5 and 6 and July 18 and 19.
Other dates set are: New- port on May 5, Nottingham on May 10, Glasgow on May 18, Belfast on May 19, Southampton on May 25, Bolton on June 14 and 15, Slough on June 21 and 22, Newcastle on June 29, Leeds on July 6 and 7, Cambridge on July 20, Dudley on September 6 and 7, Exeter on September 13, Bath on September 14 and Maidstone on September 27 and 28.
