UK Banking Standards Board Publishes Principles for Strengthening Professionalism
03/12/2018The Banking Standards Board has published the "BSB Statement of Principles for Strengthening Professionalism - The role of the firm", which is a guiding statement of principles intended to assist banks and building societies to strengthen professionalism in the banking sector. The BSB has defined professionalism in UK banking as "attitudes, judgement and high standards of behaviour, knowledge and skill expected of individuals working in banking". The Statement consists of six principles, each of which is supported by action points on how the principle can be achieved.
The Statement does not impose any legal or regulatory obligations on firms or replace any regulation. It is intended to assist firms in structuring their own practices and to build on regulatory initiatives, such as the Senior Managers and Certification Regimes.
