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.

ComplyCraft Consulting Limited

COMPLYCRAFT CONSULTING LTD has been formed by highly experienced compliance professionals to provide a wide range of regulatory compliance services.

As a consultancy we aim to deliver people led compliance solutions and value courtesy, respect and clear and concise communication. We are a consultancy led by consultants – where staff are remunerated based on the work they deliver, reducing turnover and retaining our key people. We offer a competitive and highly skilled compliance solution to our clients.

Our services include –

FCA Authorisation and other applications or notifications
We can help you obtain an FCA licence (Part 4A permission) as part of an FCA authorisation application. We can assist with other submissions to the regulator such as Variation of Permission (VoP) or change in control (which can be required as part of a restructure or change in business

Help and advice for regulated firms
Maybe you are seeking FCA authorisation, are newly authorised, or a compliance veteran in a well resourced team. We will offer a pragmatic service which suits you and your firm. We prefer an ongoing engagement. We do not have a minimum number of hours or commitment; this gives us flexibility to work with start ups, small firms with tight budgets and larger firms who only need occasional help. If you would like an ad hoc engagement we will happily support this, and we understand that sometimes you just need the option to ‘phone a friend’

In house support (Secondments, Compliance Monitoring, Regulatory projects and SMF 16 / 17)
Our consultants have all worked in house on long term secondments, fulfilled compliance monitoring or focused on helping complete compliance projects.

We are skilled at undertaking training needs analysis; designing and delivering bespoke training where this is required, for individuals or groups. We can call on external training experts to assist in this process, working with them to ensure it reflects the relevant level of technical knowledge.

Regulatory projects
Our staff have helped firms implement regulatory change throughout their organization (both large and small firms with fees to match). Distilling the essential information and actions require to comply and outlining the steps needed. Creating tools and summaries. And when required, managing this change alongside clients or taking a more hands on role.

We can review your implementation of changes in response to previous regulatory change projects. Or we can help to address upcoming regulatory change (for example, on IFPR) from impact
assessments, gap analysis through to training and implementation.
