Implementing the Senior Managers and Certification regime

Overview - The UK Senior Managers and Certification Regime

Our Senior Managers and Certification Regime (SMCR) Working Group has been closely following the development and implementation of the SMCR since the FCA and the PRA first published their proposals in July 2014. Since then, we have advised a significant number of banks and building societies in relation to their implementation of the SMCR, as well in relation to as a range of post-implementation issues.

We are also now advising a number of FCA-only authorised firms in relation to their implementation of the extension of the SMCR, and have launched a specialist online tool which is designed to assist firms in relation to their implementation of the SMCR.

Members of our SMCR Working Group sit on and participate in key industry working groups and bodies relating to the SMCR, and regularly publish articles and are quoted in the press on topical issues relating to the SMCR. A selection of our SMCR publications is available below.

We hope that you find the information set out in this microsite useful. If you have any further questions or would like to discuss what assistance we can provide to you and your firm, please do not hesitate to contact a member of our SMCR Working Group, or by emailing SMCR_Enquiries@allenovery.com.
