On 22 June 2020, the FCA announced the name of its new data collection platform which replaced Gabriel. The new platform is called RegData. The FCA explains that since April, firms have been registering for RegData through a one-off activity when accessing Gabriel.
The FCA explains that it will be moving firms and their users to RegData in groups to minimise the impact this has on them. Firms’ moving dates will be determined by the nature of their reporting obligations and reporting schedules. Firms will not be able to access RegData until they and their users’ data have been moved from Gabriel. The FCA will email firms’ principal user and associated users three weeks before their moving date, with reminders five days and one day to go. Compliance consultants will receive reminders for every firm their user account is currently associated with in Gabriel.
