It also helps to maintain the integrity of, and confidence, in the UK financial services sector.
Government is seeking views on the guidance on the approach that OFSI will take when considering imposing a monetary penalty and determining the level of the penalty to ensure that:
- the decision-making process is transparent
- the Treasury can issue clear guidance about the approach prior to the power being used
- the approach is fit for purpose
