The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) is an independent authority in the UK that promotes openness of official information and protection of private information. According to its Web site, the ICO does this "by promoting good practice, ruling on eligible complaints, providing information to individuals and organisations, and taking appropriate action when the law is broken."

 

The ICO oversees:

  • The Data Protection Act

  • The Freedom of Information Act.

  • The Environmental Information Regulations.

  • The Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations.

We have been FCA Authorised since 2015.  It is vital that firms and individuals offering financial services run their businesses in the best interests of consumers and uphold the integrity of the financial services industry. The FCA are responsible for authorising, supervising and taking action where needed against firms and individuals who undertake financial services activities. Firms offering these ‘regulated activities’ have to be authorised or registered by them, unless they are specifically exempt.

 

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is a financial regulatory body in the United Kingdom, but operates independently of the UK government, and is financed by charging fees to members of the financial services industry.[3] The FCA regulates financial firms providing services to consumers and maintains the integrity of the UK’s financial markets.[4] It focuses on the regulation of conduct by both retail and wholesale financial services firms.[5] Like its predecessor the FSA, the FCA is structured as a company limited by guarantee.

EPIC (Ex Police in Industry and Commerce) is the only business networking organisation exclusively for former police officers and police staff who, are leaving the service or having left the service, are intending to or have, either started their own business or entering the commercial sector.

Choosing with whom to do business can be a minefield. Most people do not know where to go, or who to trust and the last thing they want to do is pick someone at random with no prior knowledge of their reliability.

 

In order to inspire customer confidence, we ensure that all our members are vetted and are proud of our strapline of "Integrity Assured".
