Section 58: Regulation by FSA

331.Section 58 enables the Treasury to make regulations which will enable the Financial Services Authority to monitor and enforce the prohibition on payment and receipt of referral fees in respect of those it regulates. As section 57 allows regulators to use existing powers to enforce the prohibition, so section 58 allows the Treasury to make regulations enabling the FSA to use existing provisions in the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000(14) for the same purpose. In addition, the regulations may make provisions similar to those under section 57 which require regulated persons to show that a particular payment is not a referral fee and to specify maximum amounts that can be paid for certain services, above which a regulated person will be required to show that the payment is not, or does not include, the payment of a referral fee.
