Welcome to the Spring 2018 edition of Pensions Accounting, Assurance & Regulatory round-up for private sector occupational pension schemes.
Since our last edition, there has been an abundance of legislative and regulatory consultations issued. The DWP has published responses to both the costs and charges and master trust consultations, and we consider the impact of some of these changes in this edition. The Pensions Regulator has continued to drive forward its 21st Century Trusteeship Campaign; and with the GDPR deadline fast approaching we see trustees taking steps to ensure compliance by the 25 May deadline. We also touch upon latest topical news and the implications for scheme trustees.
