EG 20.2 1Information gathering and investigation powers

EG 20.2.1RP

1The CCA Order applies much of Part 11 of the Act. The effect of this is to apply the same procedures under the Act for appointing investigators and requiring information when investigating contraventions of the CCA Requirements and offences committed under the CCA.

EG 20.2.2RP

1The FCA will notify the subject of the investigation that it has appointed investigators to carry out an investigation under the CCA Order and the reasons for the appointment, unless notification is likely to result in the investigation being frustrated. The FCA expects to carry out a scoping visit early on in the enforcement process in most cases. The FCA's policy in civil investigations under the CCA Order is to use powers to compel information in the same way as it would in the course of an investigation under the Act.
