Important changes to authorisation

Last Modified: 21/10/2013
We have made some changes to the authorisation applications submission protocols to facilitate the submission of applications electronically.

Electronic submission will improve our ability to progress applications during periods when normal working arrangements are disrupted.

Please submit an electronic copy of your application in addition to your paper application, to the FCA. You can provide the electronic copy in the following formats:

  1. CD (password protected - we will request the password on receipt of the application); or
  2. email - please send to (we will acknowledge the application once the paper application and fees are received).

Please ensure that the electronic files are in PDF, Word and Excel format.
