Where do you start when setting up your SMCR programme?

Once you understand the level to which you need to comply (If you’re unsure on what tier your firm is check out blog 5 – Your SMCR queries answered).


There are eight broad areas to getting fully on-board with SMCR.


How technology could help your SMCR programme

  1. SureCloud’s SMCR software puts you in control and helps you understand the impact on your business. Rather than apply a catch-all approach, our solution can apply a filter which defines and treats each legal entity separately so that each business can be managed on an individual basis. As a Core company – the tier that most organisations will fall under – you will able to access all the functionality that comes with an Enhanced approach, and apply it as you choose.
  2. Once your scope has been established, we can put forward recommendations for the documentation processes by way of a solution that helps you build a centralised register of your roles and responsibilities, the employees that hold them, and how these roles map to functions defined within the regime.
  3. The solution can then be embedded into your HR and Governance frameworks to ensure individuals are appropriately vetted and certified depending on their responsibilities, with much of the workflow being fully automated.
