The FCA has published Handbook Notice 26, setting out changes made to the FCA Handbook under instruments made by the FCA board on 24 September 2015 and 22 October 2015.  The changes include the Accountability and Whistleblowing Instrument 2015 (FCA 2015/46), an instrument making rules intended to help uncover problems in firms at the earliest opportunity and to protect whistleblowers.  Part of the instrument comes into force on 7 March 2016 and the remainder on 7 September 2016.
