The FSA is running a TCF training seminar for compliance consultants in Norwich, giving them the chance to know what the regulator expects from firms.
The regulator says the aim of the seminar is to deliver messages to firms during a period where they are preparing for and being assessed on TCF.
The training seminar will be interactive, allowing consultants to learn from each other, as well as the FSA. Speakers will go through practical examples of what the FSA means by TCF. This will includes going through what the regulator is looking for when it visits a firm.
The seminar will take place in Norwich on 21 January and is for both small FSA regulated retail firms and compliance consultants with the emphasis on small firms, which is a new angle.
"We hope these seminars will maximise the opportunity for messages to be acted upon and firms' thinking and for compliance consultants to challenge and, if necessary, change.
"We want to create an environment for firms where understanding of compliance and good practice standards is widespread and firms are fully engaged in meeting those standards," says the regulator.
