SIA Prosecutions

The Macrory report ('Regulatory Justice: Making Enforcement Sanctions Effective', published in 2006) recommended that "to ensure improved transparency and accountability... each regulator should publish a list on a regular basis of its completed enforcement actions and against whom such actions have been taken."

Much of our enforcement activity cannot be reported on due to data protection and commercial considerations. However, completed prosecutions are a matter of public record. The following table provides information on the prosecutions investigated and initiated by us in the last 12 months. Other prosecutions are initiated by police forces and other government agencies with our support: these are not reported here.

Information presented is current as of 31 January 2019.
