It is the 2nd edition of the Intermediary Times published this year and gave an indication that error reporting will feature in the CBI agenda next year: “Owing to the limited number of errors being reported by the Retail Intermediaries sector to the Bank in recent years, we are planning to undertake supervisory work in this area in 2022, to ensure firms are handling and reporting on errors in line with the Code requirements.”

It is an essential read for all intermediaries and has a reminders section on page 19 of upcoming matters.
