STANDING DATA CHECK
It is the responsibility of all active financial service providers in the UK to ensure that all the information held by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) on their businesses is correct and up-to-date.
Under the terms of the FCA Threshold Condition 2.3 – Effective Supervision, all firms directly authorised with the FCA must periodically check their standing data.
What is standing data?
Put simply, standing data is all the critical data about your business that is stored within the FCA Register and on CONNECT, the FCA’s user management system. Get Hassle-free standing data checks to maintain your FCA compliance.
The FCA Handbook states that all authorised financial service providers must check the accuracy of their standing data within 30 business days of its accounting reference date. If any standing data is found to be outdated, firms must file the updated standing data to the FCA using the appropriate forms.
