Connect - Financial Conduct Authority


Published: 20/07/2015     Last Modified: 19/05/2016
You should use Connect to make most applications and notifications to us. It has replaced ONA for most of these processes.

Connect is our online system that you can submit applications and notifications for:

  • approved persons
  • appointed representatives
  • variation of permission
  • standing data
  • passporting
  • part 4A permission (dual regulated firms still have to use the paper forms)
  • payment institutions: authorise, register or cancel
  • PSD agents: add, amend or remove
From 18 April we will be adding links to some new applications and forms as part of the Market Abuse Regulations regime.
