FCA Handbook

Published: 19/04/2015     Last Modified: 11/09/2015
The FCA Handbook contains the complete record of FCA Legal Instruments and presents changes made in a single, consolidated view.

All regulated firms must comply with the rules set out in the FCA Handbook.

Dual-regulated firms will need to consider both FCA and PRA rules, so should also refer to the PRA Rulebook.


Subscriptions are available per module or for the entire Handbook, as well as for the Listing, Prospectus and Disclosure and Transparency Rules.

Subscriptions are annual and include all relevant updates on a monthly basis.

To subscribe to the Handbook online and receive alerts and other updates, please create an account.

You can also order a copy of the Handbook from the TSO shop.

New Handbook website

We launched a new Handbook website in August 2015 to provide a cleaner, easy-to-use interface for finding and reading our rules.

Email handbook.feedback@fca.org.uk to let us know what you think of the new Handbook.
