Working with other organisations

The Claims Management Regulation Unit consults with trade associations, banking associations, consumer groups and other regulators to keep our stakeholders and industry involved with regulation and to share best practice on new or high profile developments, such as tackling mishandled PPI claims.

  • Financial Conduct Authority
  • Financial Ombudsman Service
  • Financial Services Compensation Scheme
