In gathering information under DTR 1.3.1 R, the FSA may contact the issuer, person discharging managerial responsibilities, connected person or their adviser directly. Telephone calls to and from the FSA may be recorded for regulatory purposes. The FSA may also require the issuer, person discharging managerial responsibilities, connected person or their advisers to provide information in writing.
The FSA may, at any time, require an issuer to publish such information in such form and within such time limits as it considers appropriate to protect investors or to ensure the smooth operation of the market.
If an issuer fails to comply with a requirement under paragraph (1) the FSA may itself publish the information (after giving the issuer an opportunity to make representations as to why it should not be published).
