The latest edition of our Regulation in Focus podcast series features Karen Anderson and Andrew Procter, both partners in our FSR practice and both former regulators, in conversation about the FCA’s plans to streamline regulatory decision-making, which – if the FCA proceeds as proposed – will be a significant change to how authorisation, supervision and enforcement are delivered. Karen and Andrew review the arguments which led to the establishment of the Regulatory Decisions Committee to provide independent administrative decision-making. They then outline the FCA’s plans for change and discuss whether the regulator has a strong case.
