Had the IFAs who commented on our accreditation of the FSA website (Money Marketing, May 2) clicked on the Winning Website logo, they would have found the following text clearly displayed: “Exclusion from the accreditation: We have excluded from the accreditation the FSA Register and links to current and past publications.”
The FSA handbook – which was the focus of IFAs' criticisms – is a current publication. It is thus excluded from the accreditation.
Were we to insist that everything on a site came under the accreditation umbrella, it is unlikely that we would accredit any site.The search for perfect practice would thus drive out good practice.
