Pre-requisites for Potential Applicants
In order to be eligible for FCSA Accreditation, all applicants must meet all of the following criteria:
The above minimum criteria are essential for FCSA to be able to assess applicants’ business operations in practice, not just in theory. It is important to realise that FCSA accreditation is not just a tick-box exercise.
A Fit and Proper Person Form is required to be completed for each director of the business. Upon receipt of payment and the completed forms, the due diligence checks can be undertaken. Application for membership is to be made for all companies within the group, or who have common ownership/directorship, that offers services falling within the scope of FCSA Accreditation, even if they are separate companies and/or are branded separately. Once the Chief Executive and FCSA Board have approved the initial application, you will be invited to engage with an assessor.
