The Association of Professional Compliance Consultants, or APCC, is the body for compliance consultants who advise firms regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority 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. This relationship with the FCA provides our members with significant benefits in terms of direct access to the Regulator. The APCC often works in conjunction with the FCA to pilot or test new initiatives, and we also provide the FCA with valuable feedback on specific subjects as requested by them.
Our members benefit not only from the dialogue we have with the FCA, but from our regular forums, technical briefings and interaction with other members. Members' are listed on the APCC website Directory which can produce potential new business for them and publicly confirms their commitment to our professional standards. We also receive direct referrals from the FCA which often leads to new clients for our members.
Our members come from all sectors of the financial services industry. Many firms specialise in a specific sector such as fund management or investment retail intermediaries, and, in a sign of the times, we are now very active in the Consumer Credit arena. Other members have cross sector capability and range from sole traders to the largest consultancies in the sector, all benefitting from the membership as part of the wider consulting community.
Better Regulation is the leading provider of up-to-date legal and regulatory information, with a comprehensive database of consolidated EU and domestic legislation, and an extensive library of official publications and expert commentaries.
