Defined benefit funding code of practice consultation

Published: 3 March 2020
Closing date: 2 September 2020

Consultation on our revised defined benefit (DB) funding code of practice.


We are consulting on a revised DB funding code of practice in two parts. This is the first consultation and considers:

  • our new proposed regulatory approach
  • the principles we think should underpin the new framework
  • how they could be applied in practice to provide clearer guidelines

The second consultation, planned for later in 2020, will focus on the draft code itself.

We would like to hear from any interested party, particularly trustees, employers, advisers, and members of DB pension schemes and their representative organisations.
