Certain decisions are made by the executive arm of the Pensions Regulator rather than the Determinations Panel. Examples include some types of trustee appointment and issuing clearance statements and improve notices.

The Regulator has issued a consultation on how such powers are exercised by its staff. The aim is to provide clarity and transparency, so that there is more effective and efficient interaction between Regulator and other parties.

The consultation period runs until June 27, 2014. A copy of the consultation document can be viewed here.
