Consultation details

In December 2006, we published our Framework for Regulatory Decision Making. The document started that we would review the framework, and our performance against it, two years after adoption.

A public consultation on the original document was held between 9 July and 16 October 2009. A summary of responses can be viewed on the FSA website.

Research was also carried out through interviews with FSA policy makers.


The document has been revised to take into account the responses to the original consultation and the results of the interviews with FSA policy makers.

This second consultation gives interested parties the opportunity to comment on the revised document. This consultation is for four weeks, as it is a follow-up consultation to the original consultation, which was held for 14 weeks.
