CLC launches consulation on disciplinary data
The Council for Licensed Conveyancers has launched a consultation for views on publishing data about the disciplinary history of the individuals and firms it regulates.
The council is seeking views on the possibility of publishing; notice of hearings of its adjudication panel, including details of the allegations and the identity of the respondent; findings of the adjudication panel and details of all sanctions imposed; details of regulatory actions taken by staff; summary reports of monitoring and inspection work.
The body proposes to abolish the £5,000 fine threshold, below which details of disciplinary determinations are not currently published, while information relating to interventions is already published.
The consultation is part of the Council’s general review of its publication policy, aimed at ensuring the CLC is achieving best practice and providing the regulated community, stakeholders and consumers with the information they need.
The consultation runs for six weeks and will close on Friday, 6th June.
The consultation document can be found on the CLC’s website.
