Clifford Chance

SMCR Manager

Digital compliance solution

SMCR Manager is an interactive digital tool which combines our legal expertise and an innovative workflow process to guide users through the application of the Senior Managers and Certification Regime (SMCR). Following implementation, SMCR Manager also provides ongoing support to ensure you remain compliant.

The extension of the SMCR will replace the Approved Persons Regime in December 2019 for all FCA regulated firms including asset managers, investment firms and consumer credit firms. The aim of SMCR is to reduce harm to consumers and strengthen market integrity by making firms and individuals at those firms more accountable for their conduct and competence.

SMCR Manager has been designed in collaboration with clients and industry bodies so it has an intuitive user interface and workflow process.
