Types of decision
The search tool gives you an option to search by types of outcome, which include the individual regulatory decisions. These are listed below—follow the links to find out more about each type of outcome and what it means.
You should read about the individual types of decision in conjunction with anything you see on a regulatory record and contact us for the latest on that individual or firm, before making any judgements about the individual or firm, as this website cannot give a complete picture of the regulatory record.

- Regulatory settlement agreement
- Withdrawal of authorisation of non-lawyer manager
- Revocation of recognition—recognised bodies
