Article by

The Phone-paid Services Authority has launched a consultation on proposals to enhance effectiveness of sanctions imposed by PSA Tribunals on non-compliant providers.

The PSA says that it has been reviewing the effectiveness of its approach to sanctioning. In particular, it has reviewed whether its current approach effectively achieves its goals of preventing consumer harm, protecting the reputation of the market and creates a level playing field for industry.

The PSA is consulting on amendments to the sections of its Supporting Procedures, which set out the procedures adopted by the Tribunal when imposing sanctions. The proposed changes are to sections 12, 13 and 14 of the Supporting Procedures.

Further information about the proposals is set out in the consultation paper.

The proposals are only likely to impact those providers subject to enforcement action.

The consultation runs until 18 May 2017. To access the consultation, click here.
