CSA Code of Practice
All members are expected to adhere to our Code of Practice, which guarantees that the very highest industry standards are upheld.
The CSA Code of Practice is the benchmark for industry best practice, assuring quality and professionalism in the services Members provide. We work closely with the financial services regulator, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), and other industry regulators to continually update the Code of Practice in line with the latest regulatory developments.
It is essential that all CSA members follow our Code of Practice and provide a declaration of compliance with statutory legislation covering our industry. Members can also be subject to annual credit checks.

Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person's liberty by another
