Course Summary:


This half day course provides a practical, hands-on workshop on handling and managing Central Bank inspections which the regulator conducts under its statutory/regulatory objectives.

Our in-depth experience as consultants has led us to conclude that many firms, although they may suffer a regulatory failure, compound issues by:

  • not having a compliance risk map;
  • not knowing their business model;
  • not knowing key regulatory obligations;
  • not being up-front with the regulator;
  • failing to address the regulator’s concerns;
  • not understanding the risks their business poses to consumer, financial stability and regulatory reputation; and
  • not identifying and managing staff likely to be of interest to the regulator during visits.

By attending this course participants gain critical knowledge on the above points, plus a full understanding of the conduct of Central Bank inspections, including its powers and modus operandi, pre-inspection documentation requests, on-site documentation reviews, the interview process and regulatory administrative sanctions.  Inspections by the Central Bank involve the interviewing of directors (executive and non-executive), senior staff and reviews and assessments of documents to enable it to determine its risk assessment and perceived deficiencies at your firm.  Managing a Central Bank visit is vital and failing to do so may give the Central Bank an unfair impression of your businesses.

We have helped many firms (banks, investment firms, intermediaries and insurers) in this space and the skills we will impart at training will give you the information, knowledge, documentation and confidence to handle an inspection by the Central Bank.

Who Should Attend:

  • Directors (Executive & Non Executive)

  • Compliance Officers
