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.
In order to achieve FCSA accreditation, applicants are independently audited against our published standards (see above). The process requires applicants to provide documentary evidence of how they adhere to each and every standard. In addition to the paperwork element, assessors conduct in-depth site visits to the applicant’s business to interview their staff, test scenarios, undertake random audits, listen to on-boarding calls and ensure that all policies and procedures are being implemented in practice.
