Governor Software Ltd announced that the first early adopter UK FCA regulated firms have signed up to begin using Governor Reg: FCA; providing these firms their own live version of the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) Handbook. This digital copy of the FCA Handbook allows the firms to easily map, track and report regulatory compliance, streamlining the process and providing them with clear evidence within the FCA format of what they have done to be compliant.


Governor Software will be running a live webinar at 10am BST, 2 May 2019, with Alan Blanchard (formerly of the FCA) to talk through the story of its development via the FCA TechSprints and show you the power of the digital FCA Handbook.

Live Webinar: The FCA Handbook has gone Digital: What doe this mean for UK Regulated Firms?
Thursday, 2 May 2019, 10am BST


The FCA Handbook is changing!  The need for firms to continue to work directly off a static copy of the FCA's UK financial regulations is coming to an end.  These changes mean that the traditional approach of transposing regulations into spreadsheets or other documents to track actions and log compliance that has been so time-consuming and inefficient, is over.

What is the New Approach

Since 2016 The FCA has been working with RegTech firms to improve the way in which UK Financial Regulations are distributed, recorded and tracked and both our speakers were heavily involved in this process. 


We invite you to join Richard Pike, CEO, Governor Software and Alan Blanchard (formerly FCA), Business Development (UK) at Apiax, on this 45 minute webinar where they will provide background to the upcoming changes, the developments that have taken place, the reason for the changes and how UK Banks and Financial Firms compliance teams will benefit.
