Do you have your ICO number?


Registration with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is a requirement for any business processing customer data, regardless of FCA regulation.

It is a must for Independents to meet regulators’ and SAIF’s requirements and ensure you are protecting families and their data. SAIF and Golden Charter encourage Independents to ensure you are fully registered.

ICO registration is a requirement of SAIF membership. Additionally, under Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) rules being introduced in July, registration is a regulatory requirement for any Appointed Representative of a funeral plan provider – and it’s also required for any business processing customer data.

As Golden Charter explained in a recent newsletter: “The FCA expects any Appointed Representative to be registered with the ICO, as it helps ensure they’re meeting the required standards of data protection. Make sure you have your ICO number to hand to ensure you can complete your application as quickly as possible.

“It only takes a few minutes and is inexpensive.”
