CB:PSB Foundation Standard for Professional Bankers




The CB:PSB Foundation Standard for Professional Bankers (Foundation Standard) sets out the CB:PSB’s expectations of all individuals in relation to the Professional Conduct and Professional Expertise requirements for all those working in the banking industry. 

Those meeting the Foundation Standard are able to demonstrate their commitment to their professional development which, in turn, should enhance and sustain public confidence and trust in banks and bankers, and pride in the banking profession.

The Foundation Standard was initially published in July 2012 and was revised in January 2016.
