SM&CR Conduct Rules eLearning
The Senior Managers and Certification Regime (SM&CR) is widening beyond banks and insurers to all firms authorised to provide financial services under the Financial Services and Markets Act. It will replace the existing Approved Persons Regime for these firms in late 2019.
As part of the SM&CR, the FCA introduced a new set of conduct rules that will apply to all employees within firms – not just approved individuals. These enforceable rules set basic standards of good personal conduct against which the regulator can hold people to account. The FCA views these conduct rules as a means to improve standards of individual behaviour in firms from the top down and the bottom up. The conduct rules are described as a meaningful change in the standards of conduct the regulator expects from those working in the industry.
