On a new page on its website, ‘Measuring our impact before we intervene‘, the FCA has published a group of documents that aim to provide an indication of how the FCA assesses the likely impact of its policies.
These documents consist of:
- a paper setting out the FCA’s approach to conducting cost benefit analyses for their policies;
- a paper describing when and how the FCA considers it appropriate to undertake field trails to gather evidence for their policies; and
- Occasional Paper No. 39, which assists in estimating the benefits of interventions that intend to affect consumer behaviour.
