Decision on revising our Enforcement procedure and Financial Penalties Policy

28 June 2018

We are publishing our updated Enforcement Procedure and Financial Penalties policy today.  This follows a consultation, which we launched at the end of February, on proposals to revise our existing Enforcement Procedure and Financial Penalties Policy

Our Enforcement Procedure provides information on what to expect when we initiate an investigation or take enforcement action. The Financial Penalties Policy is required by statute and covers both whether to impose a financial penalty and a process for determining the amount of the penalty.

We received 11 responses to the consultation and these are published here.

The amended documents can be found below and all come into effect today.
