Enforcement: preventing a referral to enforcement
This practice note considers the key notification requirements to which FCA authorised persons are subject and the supervisory and thematic visits which the FCA carries out. It outlines the action which an authorised person can take, in consultation with the FCA, to seek to avoid a referral to the FCA's Enforcement and Financial Crime division in relation to any identified concerns. Although this practice note refers throughout to firms, it is also relevant to individuals authorised under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (FSMA).
