Response

I can confirm that we hold the information you have requested.

Information we are able to supply

For questions (a) through to (c), and for the years stated in those questions the answer is zero, as no civil penalties were issued during the period in question.

During the period prior to 2009 Occupational Pensions Regulatory Authority (OPRA) was in operation and the civil penalties you noted were issued and reported by OPRA. This was therefore before the creation of TPR and its Determinations Panel.

In the current financial year there have been civil penalties issued and our annual report will provide records of these. For your convenience I have included a website link below for our Annual Report and Accounts webpage.
