FRC: Independent review of Financial Reporting Council sanctions: call for submissions

On 30 March 2017 the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) announced an independent review of the sanctions imposed under its enforcement procedures.

The independent panel appointed to conduct the review (the Review Panel) has now issued a call for submissions and evidence. It is important to the Review Panel that it should receive written responses from a full range of viewpoints in relation to the issues which are the subject matters of its review.

The Review Panel will analyse the responses received, consider other relevant information, and produce a report setting out its findings and recommendations which will be provided to the FRC and published.

The deadline for responding to this call for submissions is 30 June 2017.
