Approved Person(s) Training Approved Person(s) Training For FCA Regulated Business - Becoming an Approved Person

What is an Approved Person?

An approved person is someone who is approved to perform a 'Controlled Function' for an authorised firm or an appointed representative firm. To be approved to perform a Controlled Function, you must satisfy FCA that you can meet, and maintain, the criteria for approval (the fit and proper test (FIT)) and then perform that Controlled Function in line with a set of standards (the Statements of Principle and Code of Practice for Approved Persons (APER))

What is a Controlled Function?

The Controlled Functions are those roles for a FCA regulated business that have a particular regulatory significance. An example is being a director of a regulated firm or overseeing the firm's systems and controls and being responsible for compliance with the FCA's rules.

There are different Controlled Functions relevant to different businesses, depending on the particular regulated activities they carry on. So no firm will need to perform all the functions.
