ICO publishes decision on FCA attestations: FCA had been asked for guidance it had given to its supervisory and enforcement teams on the use of attestations. It said it held none on the use of attestations as an enforcement tool as attestations are not part of the enforcement process. It acknowledged it held guidance on use as a supervisory tool but withheld it, citing section 36 Freedom of Information Act 2000 as its justification. Later, it provided some, but not all, the information. The complainant contacted ICO. ICO found that FCA had grounds to withhold most of the information, but that a small amount was not covered by an appropriate exemption from the need to disclose it. It also held the appropriate exemption was not that in section 36, but rather section 31. (Source: ICO Publishes Decision on FCA Attestations)
