Fitness & Probity Searches

The Fitness and Probity mechanism was established by the Central Bank under the Central Bank Reform Act 2010 (the 2010 Act). It was deemed essential to the ‘…protection of the public interest and to ensuring there is public trust and confidence in the financial system…’

The primary rationale behind the Fitness and Probity Regime was ‘… to ensure that individuals in key and customer facing positions (referred to in the legislation as Controlled Functions (CFs) and Pre-Approval Controlled Functions (PCFs)) within a Regulated Financial Service Provider (Regulated Firm) are competent and capable, honest, ethical and of integrity and also financially sound…’.

We at Ellis & Ellis provide a comprehensive search facility against all of the public registers set to meet the criteria, including amongst other things the following types:-

  • Registered Judgments (Debt/ Money)
  • Bankruptcies (Including EU Bankruptcies)
  • Disqualified/Restricted Directors
  • Directors/Business Owners
  • Insolvency Service Records
  • Revenue Defaulters
