Guide to the regulation of workplace defined contribution pensions

We have jointly developed this guide with The Pensions Regulator to provide an overview of how workplace defined contribution (DC) pensions are regulated to protect the interests of consumers.

Why are we publishing this guide?

We are publishing this guide to:

  • clarify the regulatory focus and approach of each regulator, how they interact and how they manage any overlaps in regulatory structure and shared risks
  • demonstrate the common elements in our approaches
  • address potential concerns that the differences in how trust-based and contract-based DC pension schemes are regulated could adversely affect member outcomes
