Compliance Documentation

Remember The Overall Rule?

If It Is Not Written Down

It Does Not Count
Even though firms may believe they have robust systems and controls in place, the regulators are increasingly finding areas where the necessary documentation is either insufficient or incomplete. In order to comply with FCA and PRA rules, Compliance Documentation must be properly evidenced and demonstrated. This is an area where Compliance CRG can help and assist firms, both large and small. Whether it be a simple process manual or a complex root cause analysis requiring sophisticated procedures, our team have the skills and experience to help. Remember the overall rule. If it is not written down – it does not count!

Compliance Monitoring Plan

Is Your Firm Compliant?

Detecting Breaches And Errors

Reviewing / Producing Bespoke Plans
The Financial Conduct Authority requires all firms to detail their Compliance Monitoring Plan. This plan is used to benchmark the level of compliance on a continual basis against pre-defined benchmarks, to ensure that no regulatory rules are breached. If any breaches or errors are detected, a control mechanism should be implemented. Our team at Compliance CRG can either review your existing plan to check whether it is compliant, or we can produce a wholly bespoke plan based on your specific business activities.
