A key requirement of the Senior Managers & Certification Regime (SM&CR) is that firms, Senior Managers in particular, must be able to evidence that they have taken reasonable steps to ensure that a firm does not breach the FCA’s regulations.

With apportionment and delegation of responsibility a vital element of functional business, Firms must have processes in place that allow these reasonable steps to be demonstrable to the regulator as and when required.
