FCSA launches new accreditation logos to reinforce transparency for the supply chain

The FCSA Accreditation logo with its distinctive orange crest is recognised by agencies, end hirers, and contractors as confirming the highest standards of compliance for the payroll intermediary companies that successfully achieve it.

However, as our membership grows and we respond to market demands by developing new codes for emerging business models, the FCSA identified a need to make it more transparent for its supply chain partners to see exactly what services each member has successfully achieved accreditation for.

The FCSA is therefore pleased to announce the launch of a new suite of Accredited Member logos; one for each of the current payroll intermediary services it awards accreditation for as illustrated below::



The new logos will replace the former generic FCSA Accredited Member logo as illustrated below with immediate effect as illustrated below: 



All Accredited Members are notified of this change request, and we look forward to seeing the new-look logos proudly displayed across their marketing collateral*.

For agencies, end hirers, or contractors wishing to check that a company is FCSA Accredited, they can do so at any time by using our online Directory of Accredited Members utilising the search function provided. There you can also check what services that member firm has successfully achieved accreditation for.

“Transparency is key for our supply chain partners, which is why the FCSA is always looking for ways in which it can reinforce this,” said FCSA Chief Executive Phil Pluck.

“The benefit of launching this new branding structure is so that our member firms can only display the accreditation logo for the service it has been awarded accreditation for. Having this suite of logos will become even more important as we look to expand our Codes to include accreditation for the PEO and Contractor Service models.”

“We’ve also been listening to our agency partners who routinely call the FCSA to run checks on group or subsidiary company names. These will also shortly be listed for each member firm on our Directory of Accredited Members, again making it easier for the supply chain to undertake those important due diligence checks,” added Phil.

Only companies that have completed the FCSA’s stringent pre-requisite and due diligence checks and robust independent, evidence-based assessment can use the FCSA Accredited Member brand marks.

If any supply chain partners have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our Head of Membership & Compliance, Deb Murphy, at


*FCSA Accredited Members have been requested to update the logo use on their digital communications with immediate effect but given a three-month period to update all printed marketing collateral.
