The FCA Smaller Business Practitioner Panel (and its predecessor the FSA’s Small Businesses Practitioner Panel) use various channels of public (and private) communication, as necessary, to highlight specific areas of concern for smaller businesses or outline its activities more generally.

These include evidence/responses to government inquiries and reviews and correspondence with FCA executives, HM Treasury officials and other relevant parties, such as other regulatory bodies and committees. A selection of such publications is posted in this section.
