DEC App 1.1 Introduction

DEC App 1.1.1G

A person who is or may be subject to enforcement action may discuss the proposed action with FSA staff through settlement discussions. Settlement discussions may take place on an informal basis at any time during the enforcement process. Where FSA staff have recommended that enforcement action be taken against a person, the mediation scheme will be available to those persons against whom action is proposed where settlement discussions are, in the opinion of either party, unlikely to lead to an agreed settlement. This appendix sets out the procedure for settlement and the framework of the mediation scheme.
