One of the reasons that providers may elect to have an independent review of their system of quality control for the development and maintenance of the QCM they have developed, and of the materials themselves, is to provide more cost-effective peer reviews for firms that have acquired or use such materials. In addition, the Standards for Performing and Reporting on Peer Reviews and related Interpretations call attention to the peer reviewer’s need to evaluate the firm’s use of QCM as a part of its system of quality control, and to consider the impact of that evaluation on the risk assessment.
Provider QCM review reports and related documents are important tools in this evaluation process. In the interest of making such documents easily accessible to firms that use such materials, their peer reviewers, and other interested parties, the NPRC has made this information available via this webpage.
Provider involvement in this process is required for all providers that undergo a QCM review under the Standards for Performing and Reporting on Peer Reviews ("Standards") (including providers that voluntarily elect to undergo this type of review). The most recently accepted QCM review reports and the related acceptance letters will be available via this webpage. Note that some providers will have multiple QCM review reports posted as different materials/guides are covered by different reports. The number of documents posted will vary based upon the results of the peer review. Documents will remain posted for the QCM review's effective dates in the last three years, or until the provider's subsequent QCM review has been completed and accepted, whichever period is longer.
If you need to obtain the QCM review results for a provider that are not yet or no longer posted, or were not required to be posted, please contact the provider directly.
