REC 6.5 FSA decision on recognition

REC 6.5.1GRP

If the FSA considers that the requirements of the Act are satisfied, it may make a recognition order, which will state the date on which it takes effect.

REC 6.5.2GRP

Where the FSA considers that it is unlikely to make a recognition order, it will discuss its concerns with the applicant with a view to enabling the applicant to make changes to its rules or guidance, or other parts of the application. If the FSA decides to refuse to make a recognition order, it will follow the procedure set out in section 298 of the Act (Directions and revocation: procedure) (which applies in consequence of section 290(5) of the Act (Recognition orders)) which is described in more detail in REC 4.8.

REC 6.5.3G

The FSA will notify the applicant if the Treasury fails to give its approval under section 307 of the Act (Recognition orders: role of the Treasury). Under section 290, the FSA is not required to follow the procedure under section 298 in this case and will not normally do so.
