FCA Screening



An FCA Screening 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 pre employment checks we carry out will consist of a variety of  background checks which will comply with the The Fit and Proper Test for Approved Persons which has been set out by the Financial Conduct Authority.

Under the Financial Services and Markets Act (2000), the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) requires the firms that it regulates to adhere to a strict code of recruitment procedure and practice.
