8.—(1) This article applies to an appointment, which is effective immediately before commencement, of a person under section 94(1) of the Financial Services Act to investigate any matter.

(2) The appointment is to be treated as an appointment of that person under section 284(1) of the Act (investigations of collective investment schemes) to investigate that matter by—

(d)any investigation under section 94(2) of the Financial Services Act begun by that person before, but not completed by, commencement, is to be treated as an investigation under section 284(2) of the Act (whether or not it could have been begun under that section);

(e)any outstanding requirement imposed under section 434(1)(b) or (2) of the Companies Act 1985, as applied by section 94(3) of the Financial Services Act, is to be treated as a requirement imposed under section 284(3) of the Act (whether or not such a requirement could have been imposed under that section);
