Purpose

DISP 2.2 Which complaints can be dealt with under the Financial Ombudsman Service?

DISP 2.2.1 G RP

The scope of the Financial Ombudsman Service's threejurisdictions depends on:26

    the type of activity to which the complaint relates (see DISP 2.3, DISP 2.4 and DISP 2.5);

  2. (2)

  3. (3)

    whether the complainant is eligible (see DISP 2.7); and

7 7
DISP 2.3.4 R RP

A complaint about an authorisedprofessional firm cannot be handled under the Compulsory Jurisdiction of the Financial Ombudsman Service if it relates solely to a non-mainstream regulated activity and can be handled by a designated professional body.625

DISP 2.3.5 G RP

7The Compulsory Jurisdiction includes complaints about the UK end of 'one leg' payment services transactions, i.e. services provided from UK establishments that also involve a payment service provider located outside the EEA. The Compulsory Jurisdiction also includes complaints about payment services irrespective of the currency of the transaction.

DISP 2.5 To which activities does the Voluntary Jurisdiction apply?

DISP 2.5.1 R RP

The Ombudsman can consider a complaint under the Voluntary Jurisdiction if:422

  1. (1)

    it is not covered by the Compulsory Jurisdiction or the Consumer Credit Jurisdiction; and

    422
  2. (2)

    it relates to an act or omission by a VJ participant in carrying on one or more of the following activities:

    1. (a)

      an activity carried on after 28 April 1988 which:

      1. (i)

        was not a regulated activity at the time of the act or omission, but

      2. (ii)

        was a regulated activity when the VJ participant joined the Voluntary Jurisdiction (or became an authorised person, if later);

    2. (b)

      a financial services activity carried on after commencement by a VJ participant which was covered in respect of that activity by a former scheme immediately before the commencement day;

    3. (c)

or any ancillary activities, including advice, carried on by the VJ participant in connection with them.

4 22
DISP 2.5.2 G RP

The scope of the Voluntary Jurisdiction is wider than that of the Compulsory Jurisdiction, and so some activities are referred to in both jurisdictions.

1 19 1 19 4 22
DISP 2.5.3 G RP

DISP 2.5.1R (2)(a) is for those that are subject to the Compulsory Jurisdiction for regulated activities but are not covered by the Ombudsman Transitional Order or the Mortgage and General Insurance Complaints Transitional Order. It enables the Financial OmbudsmanScheme to cover complaints about earlier events relating to those activities before they became regulated activities.422

2 4 22
DISP 2.5.4 G RP

DISP 2.5.1R (2)(b) is for those that were members of one of the former schemes replaced by the Financial Ombudsman Service immediately before commencement. It enables the Financial Ombudsman Service5 to cover complaints that arise out of acts or omissions occurring after commencement for any activities which are not covered by the Compulsory Jurisdiction but that would have been covered by the relevant former scheme.422

5
DISP 2.5.4A G RP

6 DISP 2.5.1R (2)(l) includes complaints about the EEA end of 'one leg' payment services transactions, i.e. services provided from EEA establishments that are subject to the territorial jurisdiction of the Voluntary Jurisdiction (see DISP 2.6.4R (2)) that also involve a payment service provider located outside the EEA. It also includes complaints about payment services irrespective of the currency of the transaction.

DISP 2.5.5 R RP

4 22The Voluntary Jurisdiction covers an act or omission that occurred before the VJ participant was participating in the Voluntary Jurisdiction, and whether the act or omission occurred before or after commencement, either:

  1. (1)

    if the complaint could have been dealt with under a former scheme; or

  2. (2)

    under the agreement by the VJ participant in the Standard Terms.

DISP 2.6 What is the territorial scope of the relevant jurisdiction?

Compulsory Jurisdiction

DISP 2.6.1 R RP

The Compulsory Jurisdiction covers complaints about the activities of a firm (including its appointed representatives) or of a payment service provider (including agents of a payment institution)6 carried on from an establishment in the United Kingdom.518

DISP 2.6.2 G RP

This:518

  1. (1)

    includes incoming EEA firms, incoming EEAauthorised payment institutions6 and incoming Treaty firms; but

  2. (2)

    excludes complaints about business conducted in the United Kingdom on a services basis from an establishment outside the United Kingdom

    .

Consumer Credit Jurisdiction

DISP 2.6.3 R

The Consumer Credit Jurisdiction covers only complaints about the activities of a licensee carried on from an establishment in the United Kingdom.518

Voluntary Jurisdiction

DISP 2.6.4 R RP

The Voluntary Jurisdiction covers only complaints about the activities of a VJ participant carried on from an establishment:518

  1. (1)

    in the United Kingdom; or

  2. (2)

    elsewhere in the EEA if the following conditions are met:

    1. (a)

      the activity is directed wholly or partly at the United Kingdom (or part of it);

    2. (b)

      contracts governing the activity are (or, in the case of a potential customer, would have been) made under the law of England and Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland; and

    3. (c)

      the VJ participant has notified appropriate regulators in its Home State of its intention to participate in the Voluntary Jurisdiction.

Location of the complainant

DISP 2.6.5 G RP

A complaint can be dealt with under the Financial Ombudsman Service whether or not the complainant lives or is based in the United Kingdom.518

5 18
5 18

DISP 2.7 Is the complainant eligible?

DISP 2.7.1 R RP

A complaint may only be dealt with under the Financial Ombudsman Service if it is brought by or on behalf of an eligible complainant.122

1 22
DISP 2.7.2 R RP

A complaint may be brought on behalf of an eligible complainant (or a deceased person who would have been an eligible complainant) by a person authorised by the eligible complainant or authorised by law. It is immaterial whether the person authorised to act on behalf of an eligible complainant is himself an eligible complainant.122

Eligible complainants

DISP 2.7.3 R RP

An eligible complainant must be a person that is:122

  1. (1)

    a consumer3;

    3
  2. (2)

    a micro-enterprise3 ;

    3
    1. (a)

      3in relation to a complaint relating wholly or partly to payment services, either at the time of the conclusion of the payment service contract or at the time the complainant refers the complaint to the respondent; or

    2. (b)

      otherwise, at the time the complainant refers the complaint to the respondent;

  3. (3)

    a charity which has an annual income of less than £1 million at the time the complainant refers the complaint to the respondent; or

  4. (4)

    a trustee of a trust which has a net asset value of less than £1 million at the time the complainant refers the complaint to the respondent.

DISP 2.7.4 G RP
1 22

In determining whether an enterprise meets the tests for being a micro-enterprise, account should be taken of the enterprise's 'partner enterprises' or 'linked enterprises' (as those terms are defined in the Micro-enterprise Recommendation). For example, where a parent company holds a majority shareholding in a complainant, if the parent company does not meet the tests for being a micro-enterprise then neither will the complainant. [Note: Articles 1 and 3 to 7 of the Annex to the Micro-enterprise Recommendation].122

3
DISP 2.7.5 G RP

If a respondent is in doubt about the eligibility of a business, charity or trust, it should treat the complainant as if it were eligible. If the complaint is referred to the Financial Ombudsman Service, the Ombudsman will determine eligibility by reference to appropriate evidence, such as audited accounts or VAT returns.122

DISP 2.7.6 R RP

To be an eligible complainant a person must also have a complaint which arises from matters relevant to one or more of the following relationships with the respondent:122

  7. (7)

    the complainant relied in the course of his business on a cheque guarantee card issued by the respondent;

  8. (8)

    2. (b)

      in relation to whom the respondent has sought to perform duties, or exercise or enforce rights, on behalf of the creditor or owner, under aregulated consumer credit agreement or regulated consumer hire agreement in carrying on debt administration as defined by section 145(7A) of the Consumer Credit Act (1974) (as amended); 232

unless:

  1. (3)

Mortgage endowment complaints

DISP 2.8.6 G RP
