Firms - Financial Conduct Authority


If you are a firm or individual that carries out a regulated financial service market activity in the UK then you must be authorised by us.

Once you’re authorised, you’ll need to meet the standards set out in our FCA Handbook of Rules and Guidance and to supply us with information so we can monitor your business.

Find out whether you need to be authorised by checking our up-to-date list of regulated activities.

If you’re already authorised, you can use our online systems to report your data or check your profile.
