Acting to stop harm: the FCA and Appointed Representatives
Shannett Thompson and Grace Castle provide an update on General Optical Council v Clarke.
Earlier last week, the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) announced that it had sanctioned PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PwC), and its audit partner Steve Denison, in relation to the 2014 audits of BHS and the Taveta Group (Taveta), following an investigation under the FRC’s Accountancy Scheme.
Last month Solicitor Mohammed Abid (MA) avoided a strike-off, instead being suspended for six months for lending his mobile to a suspect in a police cell and then denying his actions to the police. The sanction demonstrates how in some cases admissions can lead to a more favourable outcome.
Unless you’ve been under a rock for the past few months, you’ll be aware that changes are afoot in the data protection world.

On 5 June 2018, a special meeting of the ICAEW is taking place at the conclusion of the organisation’s AGM. For any ICAEW members with an interest in the disciplinary function of their regulator, attendance at this event is a must. Important changes to the Disciplinary Bye Laws, that will potentially affect all members, are being sought. If you cannot make it in person, vote on-line or send a proxy. In these latest proposals there is much to be applauded, but there is also much to be apprehensive about.
