Pensions Regulator (Financial Support Directions etc) Regulations 2005 come into force

Implementation date: 1 September 2005

The Regulations make further provision about the Pensions Act 2004, section 43, known as one of the anti-avoidance provisions, that is, the Regulator's power to issue financial support directions. They also, in relation to all the anti-avoidance provisions, extend the meaning of employer to include former employers in specified circumstances and modify those provisions of the Act in their application to multi-employer schemes. The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
