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.

ESG Accord – Accord Initiative

The Accord Initiative (brought to you by ESG Accord) is a suite of compliance, education, CPD and Regulatory analysis services, all delivered via a free to access website.

The site incorporates everything financial advisers need to build the full spectrum of capital into their advice process and has been designed to give advisers the confidence to deliver enhanced client outcomes.

The underlying theme is increasing knowledge of ESG and Sustainability (as part of the full spectrum of capital) amongst financial advisers, compliance consultants and paraplanners, enabling them to give compliant advice in a way that delivers good client outcomes whilst meeting Consumer Duty, PROD, COBS and the Sustainable Disclosure Requirements (SDR) and investment labels.

Our work has been recognised and shared on an ongoing basis with the FCA, we are part of DLAG (Disclosure and Labels Advisory Group) to inform the incoming Sustainability Disclosure Regulations.
