The FS Register is a public record of firms, individuals and other bodies that are, or have been, authorised by us or the PRA.
On this page
In the UK, nearly all financial service activities must be authorised or registered by us.
The FS Register lists all firms and individuals involved with regulated activities that we’ve currently or previously approved.
Directory Persons data
Directory Persons data for firms regulated solely by the FCA and by both the FCA and PRA is now published on the FS Register. Solo-regulated and dual-regulated firms must ensure they comply with the SM&CR.
You should check the details of any individual carrying out regulated activities on your behalf, especially current roles, and any disciplinary or regulatory action on their record.
See Directory of certified and assessed persons for more information.
