MAR 4.2 Endorsement

MAR 4.2.1R

The FSA endorses:

  1. (1)

    the Takeover Code; and

  2. (2)

    the SARs;

as respects the firms described in MAR 4.1.1 R.

MAR 4.2.2G

The FSA's endorsement in MAR 4.2.1R has effect in relation to the Takeover Code and the SARs as amended from time to time. This is because the FSA has notified the Takeover Panel that it is satisfied with the Takeover Panel's consultation procedures, and not withdrawn that notification, in accordance with section 143(6) of the Act (Endorsement of codes etc.).

MAR 4.2.3G

The effect of the FSA's endorsement in MAR 4.2.1R is that, under section 143 of the Act (Endorsement of codes etc.):

  1. (1)

    at the request of the Takeover Panel, the FSA may take enforcement action against a firm which contravenes the Takeover Code or the SARs, under Part IV (Permission to Carry on Regulated Activities), Part XIII (Incoming firms: Intervention by Authority), Part XIV (Disciplinary Measures) and Part XXV (Injunctions and Restitution) of the Act (see ENF 14.10); and

  2. (2)

    at the request of the Takeover Panel, the FSA may take enforcement action against an approved person under section 66(2)(b) of the Act (Disciplinary powers).

MAR 4.2.4G

A failure to comply with a requirement imposed, or ruling given, by the Takeover Panel under the Takeover Code or the SARs has the same effect as a contravention of the Takeover Code or the SARs, under section 143(5) of the Act (Endorsement of codes etc.).

MAR 4.2.5G

ENF 14.10 contains guidance on the FSA's exercise of its enforcement powers in this area.
