Once a quarter, we consult on proposed miscellaneous amendments to our Handbook. These tend to be minor changes but we still want to get your feedback on our proposals.
What are we consulting on this quarter?
We are proposing to:
- make minor amendments relating to the transfer of consumer credit regulation from the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) to the FCA
- introduce an administrative charge to recover costs of dealing with late publication by listed issuers of periodic financial reports under the disclosure and transparency rules
- extend the ability of authorised fund managers and others to communicate electronically with unitholders, including through website-based communications, and
- amend our procedure for processing a waiver application
Who is this consultation aimed at?
This will be relevant if you or your firm has any interest in the subjects mentioned above.
What are the next steps?
We want to know what you think of our proposals. Please send comments on Chapter 2 to us by 17 January 2014 and comments on all other chapters by 6 February 2014.
