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.

ATEB Compliance


ATEB is one of the few compliance consultancies that undertakes Conduct of Business Skilled Persons (Section 166) reviews on behalf of the FCA.
We cover the whole of the UK with regionally based consultants and offer an industry leading Suitability Report writing system.
We are experts in the Defined Benefit Pension Transfer sector. Check out our News page here for an example of the depth and detail in our newsletters
We are one of the earliest compliance consultancies, founded in 1996 to plug a gap in the market. Since then, we have provided pragmatic and hands-on support to IFAs, mortgage brokers, general insurance intermediaries, credit brokers, debt management companies, lenders and chartered surveyors. We have long standing and loyal clients and a good relationship with the FCA.
We do not simply provide resources and let you get on with it (what we call 'Report and Run' consultancy) but work with you as part of the team to implement solutions. Every year, our consultants complete around 1000 client visits.
Although we may introduce you to third party professionals, for example for PI insurance, we do not receive any form of inducement and hence provide a completely unbiased, objective and independent service, focussing solely on your needs.
We pride ourselves on the quality of service provided and have a proven track record of delivering consistently high standards. Don't just take our word for it; see for yourselves what our clients say on our website.
