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).
