All reporting firms moved to FCA’s new data collection platform RegData
RegData has replaced Gabriel as our data collection platform, with the last group of firms now moved across.
We have completed the move of 52,000 firms and 120,000 users from Gabriel to RegData. The transition began in October 2020. We moved firms and their users to RegData in groups, based on their reporting requirements.
RegData is central to our Data Strategy which will harness the power of data and advanced analytics to transform financial regulation.
RegData is informed by user feedback and is faster to navigate and easier to use. Building on feedback from firms and other Gabriel users, RegData features a number of enhancements across 3 key areas which users told us were important to them – we summarised the key changes in our RegData welcome video and our news story on RegData in November 2020.
We have published a range of short RegData user guides and explainer videos to guide users through the full suite of functionality in the new platform. New technical packs are also available for those firms who require alternative submission methods such as the Direct Submission Gateway and the Secure File Transfer Protocol.
The changes we made to our platform are technology focused. This hasn’t changed the way firms currently provide data to us and data items and relevant forms have not changed as a result of the move from Gabriel to RegData.
RegData is built with flexible technology, making it possible to fix issues quickly and to make ongoing improvements to user experience.
Let us know what you think
We’re keen to hear from firms that have used RegData and invite you to complete a short survey on your experience of the move and the system so far.
We are grateful for the time taken by those who have provided feedback to us. We are already using this feedback with the more flexible technology of RegData to fix a number of data item and submission issues.
Your feedback is important to us and, while we can’t commit to taking forward all suggestions, we will review all feedback as we continue to improve the platform.
