SMCR Non-certified Persons Conduct Rules Training Course

The UK's financial services sector has been rocked over the past decade by scandals ranging from miss-selling to market manipulation. This led to the launch of the SMCR.

One of the SMCR cornerstones is a set of five Individual Conduct Rules (ICRs) that apply to all individuals working in financial services.

Our SMCR Conduct Rules course helps non-Certified Persons learn about ICRs, their contraventions and their application to practical situations relevant to their roles.
