This serves as current guidance from the CSSCS Board of Standards (Board) in the proper use of the CSSCS designation by designees on business cards, letterhead and other marketing material.  This guidance is not comprehensive as there may be other acceptable or non-acceptable uses not specifically covered here.  Any questions of use should be directed to the Board.

It is a standard of the Board supported by the CSSCS Code of Professional Responsibility (Code) that designees must follow Board and Code guidelines on the use of the designation as well as any additional guidelines or limitations imposed by regulators, supervising insurance company and/or broker/dealer compliance departments.  Misuse of the designation as proscribed by the Code, Board guidelines or supervisory compliance limitations will be considered a violation of the Code and can subject the designee to disciplinary action.
