NOTE: The new Senior Managers Regime (SMR) and Certification Regime (CR) apply to all UK-incorporated banks, building societies, credit unions and PRA-regulated investment banks (s.71A Financial Services and Markets Act 2000) and replace the Approved Persons Regime for individuals working within those firms. However, all FCA-authorised firms that are not subject to the SMR and CR currently remain subject to the Approved Persons Regime. This includes asset managers, brokers and consumer credit firms.
