(1) Although this chapter (see SYSC 22.2.3R) only requires a full scope regulatory reference firm to try to get a reference for a person it is recruiting to perform an FCA controlled function or a PRA controlled function towards the end of the application process, the FCA would normally expect a firm to have obtained the reference before the application for approval is made.
