FPA called for a uniform standard that is "no less stringent than the existing standard under the Advisers Act." Other organizations that signed the joint letter included NAPFA, NASAA, the CFP Board, IAA, AICPA, Fund Democracy and the Consumer Federation of America. Other groups weighed in with different views on the issue.
