Association of Professional Compliance Consultants

The body for compliance consultants who advise firms regulated in the UK.

The APCC is active in enhancing the professional standards of compliance consultants and is recognised as a trade body by the FCA and other regulators. This provides our members with significant benefits in terms of direct access to the Regulators as well as business leads.  The APCC often works in conjunction with the FCA to pilot or test new initiatives, and we also provide with valuable feedback on specific subjects as requested by them.

IOSCO Report on Sustainability-related Issuer Disclosures

We have received the following communications from the FCA today.


The Board of the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) has today published a Report on Sustainability-related Issuer Disclosures. The report elaborates on IOSCO’s vision for an International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) under the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) Foundation, describing the role the ISSB could play in setting a common global baseline of sustainability-related corporate reporting standards.


The FCA has co-chaired the working group that developed this report and supports IOSCO’s vision. Complete, and globally consistent and comparable information on climate change and other sustainability matters will help markets price sustainability-related risks and opportunities and support the transition to a more sustainable future. So we welcome the good progress that is being made towards a common global baseline of reporting standards, developed under the proven governance model of the IFRS Foundation.
