SMCR Countdown: 2 months To Go

Author:Mr Celyn Armstrong and Katharine Harle

The Senior Managers and Certification Regime (SMCR) comes into force for all FCA-authorised firms on 9 December this year. Many firms are dedicating the next two months to implementation.

Dentons has a track record of helping firms successfully implement SMCR. As well as providing bespoke advice, we have also distilled some of this knowledge into an SMCR Toolkit to help firms with implementation in a compliant, cost-effective way. The Toolkit includes a project plan, checklists and template documents such as revisions to employment contracts and internal policies. It has been designed so firms only pay for the particular document(s) they want, with each item priced separately.
