Automatic enrolment Compliance and Enforcement Policy

14 July 2016

A minor change has been made to The Pension Regulator’s (TPR) Automatic Enrolment (AE) Compliance and Enforcement (C&E) Policy.

Following a recent consultation on TPR’s prosecution policy, the prosecution section has been removed from the AE C&E Policy, as the subject is now covered by a standalone policy applying to the whole of TPR’s business.

The only change to the AE C&E Strategy is the addition of a reference to the new standalone document.

The new standalone Prosecutions Policy has had the following changes made to it:

  • a paragraph has been added on victims of crime
  • a paragraph has been added on prosecution of organisations as well as individuals
  • the paragraphs on the test that TPR apply in deciding whether to prosecute have been shortened and simplified
  • a table has been added showing all of the offences under pensions law (only those applicable to AE).
