So much regulation. So many changes. So many acronyms! Fear not, we’re here to upskill you and your knowledge, so you feel prepped and ready for the upcoming changes. In 2019 we will be looking at the Senior Manager and Certification Regime.

What will it cover?

This fully interactive workshop, will demystify the rules around SM&CR, and provide you with information and guidance to ensure your firm fully meets these requirements. It will equip you with the practical tools and knowledge and implement any necessary changes and minimise any risks within your company from these changes in legislation.

SM&CR is the big regulatory development of 2019. It brings in significant changes for senior managers and advisers and also – for the first time ever – rules for other staff such as administrators. There is a significant amount of work to be undertaken to prepare for the new regulations and firms should be putting together their project plans sooner rather than later.

This workshop covers the core requirements of SM&CR, suggests ways of complying with the new regulations and flags some additional issues that may result from the new rules.

Why should I attend?

At the end of the course, delegates will be able to:

  • Fully understand the upcoming changes being effected by SM&CR
  • Have created an action plan for the implementation of SM&CR to their business
  • Understand the rules of certification and Senior Management responsibilities
