PeopleClear™ SMCR are your partners in navigating the complex world of Senior Managers and Certification Regime (SMCR) compliance. Our mission is to empower businesses with up-to-date SMCR regulations and compliance.
Through extensive HR consultancy, we identified the need for a solution for all SMCR firm categories. We collaborate with experts in Regulatory Compliance, Legal, and Technology to guarantee your firm’s success.
The primary objectives of the Senior Manager and Certification Regime (SMCR) are to protect consumers and strengthen market integrity. This will be achieved by holding every individual within regulated firms accountable for their actions, conduct and competence.
It is now your company that is responsible, not the regulator. The regime shifts the responsibility for activities within a firm onto senior managers and also brings into scope non-executive directors.
PeopleClear SMCR was purpose built with three outcomes in mind:
- To provide Senior Managers with the information they need to manage the complex requirements of SMCR and demonstrate reasonable steps to the regulators
- To enable Certified Individuals to upload key evidence to demonstrate that they are fit, proper, and competent
- To help HR, Compliance and other Support Functions facilitate the certification process and demonstrate to the Regulators that reasonable steps have been taken by all parties
SMCR applies to all financial services businesses, including banks, funds and investments, insurers and FinTech startups. It is designed to improve standards of conduct within the sector and promote a culture of individual accountability. We go beyond providing software solutions for compliance to offering expert SMCR consultancy and training. Our team can help your HR and Compliance teams confidently reach their regulatory goals with ease. Whatever stage you’re at, we’re here.
