395 The [F2FCA's and PRA's] procedures.U.K.

[F3(1)Each regulator must determine the procedure that it proposes to follow in relation to the following—

(a)a decision which gives rise to an obligation to give a supervisory notice,

(b)in the case of the FCA, a decision which—

(i)gives rise to an obligation for it to give a warning notice or decision notice, or

(ii)gives rise to an obligation for the PRA to include a statement under section 387(1A) in a warning notice or a statement under section 388(1A) in a decision notice,

(c)in the case of the PRA, a decision which gives rise to an obligation for it to give a warning notice or decision notice, other than a decision which depends entirely on a decision of the FCA of the kind mentioned in paragraph (b)(ii), and

(d)a decision under section 391(1)(c) to publish information about the matter to which a warning notice relates.]

(2)That procedure must be designed to secure, among other things [F4that—

(a)a decision falling within any of paragraphs (a) to (c) of subsection (1) is taken—

(i)by a person not directly involved in establishing the evidence on which the decision is based, or

(ii)by 2 or more persons who include a person not directly involved in establishing that evidence,

(b)a decision falling within paragraph (d) of subsection (1) is taken—

(i)by a person other than the person by whom the decision was first proposed, or

(ii)by 2 or more persons not including the person by whom the decision was first proposed, and

(c)a decision falling within paragraph (d) of subsection (1) is taken in accordance with a procedure which is, as far as possible, the same as that applicable to a decision which gives rise to an obligation to give a warning notice and which falls within paragraph (b) or (c) of subsection (1).]

(3)But the procedure may permit a decision which gives rise to an obligation to give a supervisory notice to be [F5taken otherwise than as mentioned in subsection (2) if the person taking the decision is of a level of seniority laid down by the procedure and—

(a)in the case of procedure proposed by the FCA, the FCA considers that, in the particular case, it is necessary in order to advance one or more of its operational objectives, or

(b)in the case of procedure proposed by the PRA, the PRA considers that, in the particular case, it is necessary in order to advance any of its objectives.]

(4)A level of seniority laid down by the procedure for the purposes of subsection (3)(b) must be appropriate to the importance of the decision.

(5)[F6Each regulator] must issue a statement of [F7its procedure].

(6)The statement must be published in the way appearing to [F8the regulator issuing it] to be best calculated to bring [F9the statement] to the attention of the public.

(7)[F10The regulator issuing the statement] may charge a reasonable fee for providing a person with a copy of the statement.

(8)[F11The regulator issuing a statement under this section] must, without delay, give the Treasury a copy of [F12the statement].

(9)When [F13a regulator gives] a supervisory notice, or a warning notice or decision notice, [F14other than a warning notice or decision notice relating to a decision of the PRA that is required by a a decision of the FCA of the kind mentioned in subsection (1)(b)(ii)] [F15the regulator] must follow its stated procedure.

[F16(9A)When the FCA takes a decision falling within subsection (1)(b)(ii), it must follow its stated procedure.]

(10)If [F17a regulator] changes [F18its procedure] in a material way, it must publish a revised statement.

(11)[F19A regulator's] failure in a particular case to follow its procedure as set out in the latest published statement does not affect the validity of a notice given in that case.

(12)But subsection (11) does not prevent the Tribunal from taking into account any such failure in considering a matter referred to it.

(13)Supervisory notice” means a notice [F20or notification] given in accordance with section—

[F21(a)55Y(4), (7) or (8)(b);]

[F22(aa)63ZC(4), (8) or (9)(b);]
