PROD 2.5 Factors the FCA will consider when making temporary product intervention rules

PROD 2.5.1G

1In general terms the FCA will consider a product intervention rule where we identify a risk of consumer detriment, a threat to market integrity or ineffective competition arising from a particular product, type of product, or practices associated with a particular product or type of product.

PROD 2.5.2G

In deciding whether the rule should be made as a temporary product intervention rule, the FCA’s main consideration will generally be whether prompt action is deemed necessary in seeking to reduce or prevent consumer detriment or a threat to market integrity or ineffective competition arising from that product, type of product or practices.
