We Love Compliance!
Some people think that compliance is a boring topic – but not us! We really do love compliance and believe that all firms who operate within a compliance driven environment, can become and remain compliant with relative ease. Compliance has been focused on so much in recent years that firms have developed a fear of ‘getting it wrong’, resulting in compliance expenses such as costly consultants, that may not be needed!
Know Your Compliance provide exclusive, ready-to-use regulatory compliance documents that are cost effective, high quality and written by experts. From our FCA Compliance Manual and unique Audit Checklists, through to Employee Compliance Assessments and PTLLS developed in-house Training Packages, we work diligently to understand the regulations, laws and guidelines that have to be followed by regulated firms and spend countless hours reading and digesting the essential information, including the FCA Handbook and associated Sourcebooks, Money Laundering Regulations, TCF Outomes and the Data Protection Act & Principles.
Instead of just telling you how you can become compliant, we provide you with the actual documents and tools to hit the ground running, whilst continually ensuring that our products meet the high regulatory standards and expectations. All documents are ready-to-use, but also enable full customisation and corporate branding to suit individual business needs and requirements. We are able to help meet the needs and requirements of many sectors, including those who must comply with:-
- Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)
- Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA)
- Information Commissioners Office (ICO)
- The Data Protection Act 1998
- The Freedom of Information Act 2000
- Joint Money Laundering Steering Group (JMLSG)

“If You Think Compliance Is Expensive – Try Non-Compliance!”
Know Your Compliance (KYC) was founded in 2013 by Catherine Roberts, who with a wealth of knowledge and experience in compliance and regulated industries and a desire to make compliance easier for firms; built a company that enables compliance and company objectives to sit side by side and work for the benefit of each other.
With over 14 years top-level management experience in compliance driven sectors, including retail, insurance, banking and debt collection; we are passionate about understanding the UK’s regulatory system; dissecting the requirements and handbooks and developing exclusive compliance documents, including our leading FCA Compliance Manual, TCF Documents, Policies & Procedures and Audit Checklists.
The UK’s compliance standards are some of the highest in the world and KYC’s aim is to help firms combine these high standards with their own objectives and ideals.
From Data Protection and FCA Compliance, through to mandatory obligations such as TCF and Vulnerable Customers, KYC have developed corporate and employee compliance documents and regulatory manuals that provide firms with a deep understanding of and compliance with the regulations and laws. Our exclusive regulatory compliance documents enable firms to assess, record and evidence their commitment and ongoing compliance and provide the ability to demonstrate such high standards to clients, customers, auditors and regulatory bodies aike.
We offer a vast range of regulatory compliance documents, manuals and packages, including policies, procedures, training packs, compliance posters, audit checklists, employee assessments and much more. We keep our ear to the ground and nose to the grindstone so that we are on top of all current and new regulations and laws affecting the Consumer credit and Financial Services sectors and we also cater to many Public Sector clients for information governance and data security solutions.
Your Staff Are The Key…
The larger your organisation becomes, the more staff you will employ and naturally more staff means less control. Human error is a fact of life and even the human brain can get overloaded with complex information from time to time. The problem is, that one little overload in a compliance regulated industry is not just a mistake, it is a breach…
Breaches cost time, money, reputation and customers; all of which can be impossible to get back once lost. The team at KYC know first hand how important training and repetition are to keep these important, compliance rules and guidelines at the forefront of your employee’s minds and company ethos. That is exactly why we have designed digital download media formats, assessment quiz sessions and full training packages created specifically to keep compliance where it should be…..at the top of your corporate check-list.
How Our Products Help…
A recent article that KYC wrote about Compliance and the implications of getting it wrong, originally started as a blog post on this site which would underline the importance of compliance and information governance to our many clients, however only 4 hours after its release, the article was picked up and published by the leading credit, collections and risk publication, CCR Magazine (you can read the full article here).
The article gives a very good overview of why compliance is so important and why controls, systems and processes are essential to ensuring adherence to the often complicated standards and regulations. Our products, toolkits and training packages give you the ability to prepare, monitor, assess, record and evidence your compliance program and to show your clients, customers and regulators that you mean business.
We are passionate about what we do and are dedicated to bringing new, innovative and solution based compliance products to the market so that organisations just like you can benefit from our expertise and embed the compliance ethos into the very foundation of your business strategy and processes.
