On 15 November 2018, the FCA published Consultation Paper 18/34: Regulatory fees and levies: policy proposals for 2019/20 (CP18/24). CP18/24 sets out the FCA’s proposed policy changes to the way that it will raise fees from 2019/20 – and applies to all FCA fee payers, credit rating agencies and trade repositories. These latter firms are currently regulated by the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA). Responsibility for regulating these firms in the UK is expected to pass to the FCA when the UK leaves the EU. Each chapter in CP18/24 deals with a specific policy area and identifies the bodies it will affect. There is a summary in Table 1.1 of CP18/24.

The deadline for responses to CP18/24 is 14 January 2019.
