EG 10.1 2Introduction

EG 10.1.1RP


EG 10.1.2RP

The orders the court may make following an application by the FCA under the powers referred to in this chapter are generally known in England and Wales as injunctions, and in Scotland as interdicts. In the chapter, the word 'injunction' and the word 'order' also mean 'interdict'. The FCA's effective use of these powers will help it work towards its operational objectives, in particular, those of securing an appropriate degree of protection for consumers, protecting and enhancing the integrity of the UK financial system and promoting effective competition in the interests of consumers in the markets.1

EG 10.1.3RP

Decisions about whether to apply to the civil courts for injunctions under the Act will be made the executive3 director of Enforcement or, in his or her absence, the acting executive director of Enforcement3.
