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.


SimplyBiz launched in 2002 with a ground-breaking proposition designed to provide directly authorised advisers with a new level of support and service previously unseen in this sector.

Today, SimplyBiz is market-leading and multi award-winning, providing outsourced regulatory and business support to more directly authorised financial advisers than anyone else. Our breadth of service and expertise is unrivalled and our commitment to excellence second to none.

Regulation is at the heart of our business, from our experienced policy and helpdesk teams, to our wider specialist and dedicated field teams who are on hand to visit our Members’ business to help them meet the regulator’s requirements.

We provide members with an array of support across key areas designed to help them to build a sustainable and successful business – from complimentary and discounted market-leading tech, to the industry’s largest event programme – with over 500 events delivered each year!

We have the experience and knowledge to ensure firms get the very best support in the most important areas for their business.
