Preparing for a GFSC visit

Course details

CPD Points





Half day (09:00-12:00)

Course Overview

This half day course will look at the documentation you need to submit prior to a GFSC visit, run through the conduct of a GFSC visit and what the outcomes of a GFSC visit might include.

Course Content

Most firms will receive a regulatory inspection visit at some time. The GFSC’s approach to supervision has changed and although visits are not as frequent, they are more targeted. They have settled on the thematic review as an efficient means of meeting their legislative supervisory obligations and for getting messages across to firms. In preparing for a visit, companies should be aware of what documentation needs to be submitted prior to a visit, the process of a visit, and the likely outcomes. This course is aimed at compliance officers, MLROs or directors who are either expecting a visit or who want to ensure that they would be prepared should they be visited.

Course Benefits

Firms cannot ignore the need to review or they run the risk of severe regulatory sanction at some point in the future. You’d be wise therefore to proactively plan for such an eventuality – but how can you do this?

By attending this course you will be prepared for the process of a GFSC visit and all that it entails.
