Handbook and guidance

Regulated firms must follow our rules. Find out how our Handbook and guidance can help them do that.

FCA Handbook

The Handbook contains the complete record of FCA Legal Instruments and presents changes made in a single, consolidated view.

All regulated firms must comply with the rules set out in the Handbook.

Dual-regulated firms will need to consider both FCA and Prudential Regulation Authority​ (PRA) rules, so should also refer to the PRA Rulebook.
