The Funeral Planning Authority
The Funeral Planning Authority (FPA) is an organisation set up by the industry to regulate providers in the UK pre-paid funeral plan industry. Their primary aim is to ensure providers are operating in a manner that will result in customers getting the funeral they have paid for when it is needed.
They do this by checking that all registered providers are abiding by a set of Rules and a Code of Practice, which goes above and beyond the minimum required standards. They also help customers who have a complaint about a provider by providing advice and attempting to resolve matters with the provider. If a resolution is not possible they will provide access to our independent dispute resolution process.
