What is FSQS?
The Helios Financial Supplier Qualification System (FSQS) is a common register of standardised, validated, structured and comprehensive vendor/third party information. FSQS helps introduce responsible business practices through due diligence, and is an accreditation marque currently used by leading financial organisations such as Lloyds Banking Group, Metro Bank, Santander, TSB, Shawbrook, Nationwide and LV. Accreditation requires suppliers to be audited against FSQS requirements in the areas of: Business continuity, Financial, Insurance, Health & Safety, IT Security, Anti-Bribery, Recruitment, Operational Risks, Fraud, GDPR, Responsible Business Governance, Environmental and Sustainability.

Why did we do this?
As financial regulations become increasingly more complex, it’s vital that businesses within this sector are able to implement a consistent and standardised approach to the selection and onboarding of new suppliers. The FSQS accreditation mark is valued by some of the largest purchasers in the financial industry. Our qualification within this system gives acceptcards® existing partners an enhanced level of reassurance whilst also providing access to working with other leading financial services organisations.
Jasmine Gilbert, Commercial Director, said
“Accreditation with FSQS is a fantastic achievement for acceptcards®. 2017 has seen our business evolve in many ways, greater clarity and strength of proposition has resulted in an increased focus on what is important to our partners. The FSQS certification enables us to expand further into the financial services industry with full organisational transparency and the ability to deliver reassurance for our partners on our commitment to compliance and responsible business practice.”
