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.

Our clients include sole traders, personal lines and commercial brokers, call centres, MGAs, underwriting agencies, insurance companies (UK and off-shore), claims management companies, loss assessors, price comparison websites and appointed representative networks.,

We offer a full compliance service, including authorisations, on-going compliance support, health checks, risk assessments (including Covid 19 and Home Working), trouble-shooting, technical help, documentation, sales and complaints reviews, help with FCA visits or investigations and regulatory reporting requirements.

We also design and deliver training in all aspects of the FCA handbook, as it applies to general insurance.

Topics range from Compliance and Regulatory to Technical Insurance subjects, Personal and Leadership Skills, Supervisory Training, Mental Health and Exam revision sessions.

The directors have spent their entire working lives in General Insurance and are still heavily involved with CII & trade body work. This means our knowledge underpins what we do. Our clients have access to an online Compliance Library which is full of guidance documents, templates, newsletters and regulatory bulletins & updates (including our Covid 19 Hub).

Whether you need help with the Senior Managers and Certification Regime, the Code of Conduct, an FCA investigation, submitting your Gabriel return, applying for authorisation, a change in control, variation of permission, consumer credit, claims management regulation and/or authorisation, managing your appointed reps, adding or removing Senior Managers or Approved Persons, general FCA notifications or anything else, we can help.

We have expert knowledge of the market, the regulatory requirements and how they apply and we also have a strong background in training.
