SCPL Awarded the Community Shares Unit Standard Mark
The Community Shares Unit (CSU) and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) work together to promote good practice by societies making community share offers. While the CSU has no formal powers to require societies to follow the guidance set out in their Handbook, it has established the Community Shares Standard Mark as a way to recognise and promote good practice. The Mark is awarded to community share offers by independent practitioners who have been licenced by the CSU to carry out this work on its behalf.
We are pleased to announce to our supporters that our Governance Rules, Business Plan, Share Offer document and Share Application Form have all been independently assessed by a qualified practitioner licensed by the CSU and that we have been awarded the Community Shares Standard Mark.
The Community Shares Standard Mark is awarded by the Community Shares Unit to offers that meet national standards of good practice. These standards ensure that:
- The offer document and application form are easy to understand
- You are provided with all the facts you need to make an informed decision
- The facts are supported by the annual accounts and/or business plan for the society
- Nothing in the documents is purposefully incorrect, confusing or misleading
Societies are asked to sign a Code of Practice requiring them, among other things, to give the public a right of complaint to the Community Shares Unit.

The SCPL Governance Rules are already available for you to download at https://scpl.org.uk/about/downloads
We will release the other share offer documents in the near future..
