As part of the continuing obligations in relation to fitness and probity, the Central Bank has introduced an Annual Pre-Approval Controlled Function Confirmation Return. The PCF Confirmation Return is an annual confirmation required from each regulated financial service provider in respect of each active PCF holder within the firm confirming they are compliant with the Fitness and Probity Standards and continue to agree to abide by those Standards.

The Central Bank has also published various "Quick Reference Guides" in relation to this new requirement for PCF's. The documents are available on the Central Bank website.
