FCA Vetting

Financial Conduct Authority Screening Check (FCA Check) is a background screening standard, which is set out to determine a person’s honesty, integrity and reputation and confirm that they are ‘fit and proper’ for the role they are undertaking.

The Financial Services Checks (FCA Check) that we carry out consists of a range of background checks that will comply with the fit and proper test for approved persons, which has been set out by the Financial Conduct Authority.

The FCA handbook, the Financial Conduct Authority indicates that: “background checks should be proportionate and risk-based and should be repeated or on-going where appropriate, for example for staff in high risk roles”.
