Do you employ staff within the financial sector?

For personnel registered with Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) a Standard DBS Check is required. 

The PRA works alongside the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) creating a “twin peaks” regulatory structure in the UK. The FCA is a separate institution and not part of the Bank of England.

The FCA is responsible for promoting effective competition, ensuring that relevant markets function well, and for the conduct regulation of all financial services firms. This includes acting to prevent market abuse and ensuring that consumers get a fair deal from financial firms. 

The FCA operates the prudential regulation of those financial services firms not supervised by the PRA, such as asset managers and independent financial advisers

If the applicant is not registered with the PRA or the FCA they will qualify for a Basic Check only. This type of Criminal Record Check is commonly used for positions within ‘Financial Services Authority’ or the ‘competent authority for listings’.
