In this Policy Statement we report on the main issues arising from Consultation Paper 15/33 (October 2015) and publish final rules for price comparison websites comparing HCSTC products. These come into force on 1 December 2016.
In Data Bulletin issues 4 and 5 we published data on the authorisation process for consumer credit firms. In this supplement we provide the key figures as of 31 December 2015. To help interpret these and explain how the data fits together, we provide a flow chart showing the number of firms at each stage of the process.
