Course Outline & Objectives

This focused workshop is specifically designed to help HR specialists contribute effectively to the implementation and ongoing operation of the SM&CR in their firms. The programme addresses the regulatory requirements that need to be met and provides an opportunity to update and refresh understanding of the regulators’ expectations. It also provides guidance on the practical steps HR can take to make SM&CR a success within their organisations. 

This course is designed for delegates from both PRA regulated firms, who are already subject to the SMR and Certification or SIMR requirements, and firms regulated solely by the FCA, who will face similar obligations shortly.
