ASIC Chairman Greg Medcraft said:

A peer review panel such as the FSCP will enhance the impact of ASIC’s administrative decisions because it draws upon the broad range of knowledge and experience of professionals in the financial services and credit industry. Our administrative decisions will benefit from the input of professionals who have a thorough understanding of current industry practices and standards. Thank you to all who expressed interest in the panel. We were delighted with the response from people in the market who are eager to assist ASIC with this very important initiative and the depth of experience and professionalism they represent.

The FSCP is a pool of industry participants that ASIC will draw upon when forming individual sitting panels. Each sitting panel will comprise two members from the FSCP and an ASIC staff member. The sitting panel will hold administrative hearings and decide whether to make banning orders against individuals for misconduct in providing financial services to retail clients or engaging in credit activities.

To support the FSCP, ASIC will release regulatory guidance which provides an overview of the FSCP and sets out the policies and procedures relevant to the operation of the panel.

On 11 April 2017, ASIC released Consultation Paper 281Financial Services Panel (CP 281) on a proposal to establish a panel. ASIC sought feedback on the optimal composition of a sitting panel, the type of matters the panel would consider, and the regulatory and financial impact of the panel. Consultation closed on 23 May 2017.
