FSA staff responsible for the taking of a statutory notice decision under executive procedures may refer the matter to the RDC for the RDC to decide whether to give the statutory notice if:
the RDC is already considering, or is shortly to consider, a closely related matter; and
the relevant FSA staff believe, having regard to all the circumstances, that the RDC should have responsibility for the decision. The relevant considerations might include:
the desirability of consistency in FSA decision making;
potential savings in the time and cost of reaching a decision;
the factors identified in DEPP 3.3.2 G as relevant to an assessment of whether a decision should be regarded as straightforward.
