FSA Issues Feedback Statement on Product Intervention


In FS11/3, a feedback statement on product intervention issued on June 14, the UK Financial Services Authority (FSA) announced that it will follow a new product intervention approach. It will actively regulate all aspects of the product life cycle and focus on the design, development and management of products. The FSA will continue its work on the later parts of the product value chain (including point-of-sale standards such as financial promotions, disclosure and advice).

The FSA acknowledges that further thinking and analysis will be required as it takes forward this approach in specific areas, and does not intend to consult on any specific new rules immediately. However, the FSA confirms its intention to move toward a single set of rules and guidance on product governance, building on what is already in place (including the treating customers fairly guidance on responsibilities of product providers and distributors for the fair treatment of customers).
