FCA Screening by cysOnline

The FCS screening check is a background screening standard which checks a persons honesty, integrity and reputation, that shows that they are ‘fit and proper’ for the position they are being employed for.

The pre employment checks we offer carry out a variety of background checks which will comply with The Fit and Proper Test for Approved Persons which is laid out by the FCA.

For a person to hold a position of responsibility and become an approved person within a financial firm, that individual should know and meet the FCA’s regulatory requirements to hold such a position.

They would be expected to comply with the Statements of Principle and Code of Practice as well as report on any information which could affect their suitability for the position as part of FCS screening tests. So when someone is employing for such a position the employer will have access to employment screening as the FCS check includes it.
