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.

APCC Spring Conference – Postponed!!!

March 12 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

We are sorry to advise that due to an understandable change of events policy at Eversheds Sutherland who were hosting our conference this Thursday, we are having to postpone this event due to the ongoing Coronavirus crisis.  We are currently working behind the scenes to be able to deliver the same amazing agenda at our Autumn Conference on 8th October 2020.

‘Making it Real’

Part of the APCC’s mission is to help our members assist in mitigating compliance risk and deliver good outcomes for your clients via our own Professional Standards. The current regulatory landscape is strongly focussed on Accountability, Responsibility, Conduct and SMCR Culture so join us to get the latest regulatory thinking.

Join us for our Spring Conference, which covers this landscape from Supervision to enforcement to your own Accountability. We have senior conduct leaders from across industry to help you exceed regulatory expectations and provide you with the practical skills needed to effect the changes in conduct risk management and culture required by your regulated clients and we will also offer an update on the role of Financial Services as we withdraw from the EU.
