COCON – Compliance Support: SMCR compliance training for all staff

The SMCR Code of Conduct is freely available on the FCA Website, but how did it come about?

What’s the history of the SMCR and the Code of Conduct Rules, and why were the Approved Person code of conduct not sufficient?

In this 1/2 day training session we will explain not only what, but the how and why the new code of conduct applies to ALL Financial Services Staff, not just the SMFs or the Certificated Persons. We will show who doesn’t need to abide by the rules, but more importantly provide real life examples of why they apply to today’s businesses.
