As part of some anti-money laundering due diligence I am trying to check if the above scheme is a regulated pension scheme and would be grateful if you would confirm as soon as possible.
Duty to confirm or deny whether we hold the information requested
We are the regulator for work-based pension schemes with more than one registered member. Any work-based pension scheme registered with HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC), with more than one member must by law register with us, and this must be done within three months from the date a scheme first becomes a registrable scheme. Therefore if the scheme you are requesting confirmation about falls into this category (ie a work-based pension scheme registered with HMRC with more than one member) then it would fall under our remit as The Pensions Regulator.
Duty to provide advice and assistance
We publish reports on the use of our powers, and regarding the particular scheme you are interested in you may find it helpful to view the report published relating to SIPS at the Shipbuilding Industries Pension Scheme - Appledore Shipbuilders Ltd Section (PDF, 194kb, 6 pages).
