(1)This section applies where a decision notice or final notice relates to the imposition of a penalty to which Article 68(1) of the capital requirements directive applies.

(2)Where a regulator publishes information under section 391(4) about a matter to which a decision notice relates and the person to whom the notice is given refers the matter to the Tribunal, the regulator must, without undue delay, publish on its official website information about the status of the appeal and its outcome.

(3)Subject to subsection (4), where a regulator gives a final notice, the regulator must publish information on the type and nature of the breach and the identity of the person on whom the penalty is imposed.

(b)publication would jeopardise the stability of financial markets or an ongoing criminal investigation; or

(c)publication would cause, insofar as it can be determined, disproportionate damage to the persons involved.

(5)Where subsection (4) applies, the regulator may make such arrangements as to the publication of information (including as to the timing of publication) as are necessary to preserve the anonymity of the person on whom the penalty is imposed.

(6)Where a regulator publishes information in accordance with subsections (2) to (5), the regulator must—
