‘Good Regulation’ and enforcement: where does enforcement fit in the regulators’ toolkit?
Enforcement by regulators and public authorities is on the rise, whether or not your business is in a regulated industry.
This session will see our chair interviewing regulators in different sectors on how they seek to achieve their objectives and when enforcement may be used.
Including discussing what areas of business risk are more likely to attract enforcement rather supervisory or remedial engagement.
Other topics will include:
- Suitable cases: what factors drive whether and when enforcement action will be taken and how do they shape the outcome?
- Individual vs company conduct: when will authorities look closely at individuals’ conduct and/or consider enforcement steps against individuals rather than the company or firm?
- Lessons learned: what lessons can businesses learn from looking at previous enforcement on how they engage with the process and how they operate more generally?
