The guidance document was published on 24 November 2011. See OFT guidance for brokers, intermediaries for further information.
The OFT consulted on guidance for credit brokers and credit intermediaries.
The guidance sets out the standards of conduct the OFT would expect in terms of fitness to be licensed. It is also relevant to consumer credit businesses (creditors) who use the services of credit brokers or intermediaries and so need to be aware of their responsibilities in relation to such persons.
The guidance draws together and updates in a single document the elements of a number of relevant documents such as the Second Charge Lending- OFT Guidance for lenders and brokers (OFT1105) and aspects of the Irresponsible Lending Guidance (OFT1107).
It also updates businesses on new regulation implementing the Consumer Credit Directive.
