ENF 6.1 Application and purpose

Application

ENF 6.1.1G

This chapter applies to firms, approved persons, and other persons, whether or not they are regulated by the FSA.

Purpose

ENF 6.1.2G

This chapter explains the FSA's powers to apply to court for injunctions and gives guidance on how the FSA intends to use these powers. The FSA's effective use of these powers will help it work towards its regulatory objectives of protecting consumers, maintaining confidence in the financial system and reducing financial crime. This chapter does not explain the use of the FSA's power to seek injunctions under the Unfair Terms Regulations. This is explained in ENF 20 (Unfair terms in consumer contracts).1
