Seriema, your SM&CR tool

A tool to support HR & Compliance departments meet their companies

obligations to the FCA’s Senior Management & Certification Regime

Our solution supports HR and compliance departments by automating processes to meet the FCA’s Senior Manager & Certification Regime (SM&CR).

HR and Compliance departments in FCA regulated businesses are busy enough at the best of times.  Whilst the  FCA say that SM&CR requires no new roles, there will be an increase in the amount of work to be done in these areas, such as:

  • Producing and maintaining statements or responsibility for senior management
  • Producing and maintaining certificates for Certified staff 
  • Performing ‘Fit and Proper’ assessments on a regular basis
  • Using regulatory references during the hiring process
  • Supporting senior managers evidence their reasonable steps 
  • Managing conduct rules breaches in line with FCA reporting guidelines

How does Seriema help?


Why Seriema? The truth is there is nothing in the behaviour of this two foot tall bird that inhabits the grasslands of Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil and feeds off insects, snakes and frogs that is related to meeting FCA principals. It’s just an alliteration of the regime’s initials (SMCR).
