Internal and External Performance Reviews

The Hampton Review
On 19th March 2010 the Hampton Review Team published its review of the SGSA’s (then known as the FLA) regulatory role and relationships with its stakeholders.
We welcome:

  • the recognition of our positive achievements;
  • the constructive suggestions for our future development; and
  • the emphasis on the importance of the proposed extension to our remit.

We have already established a working group to consider the Team’s recommendations and, where appropriate, to review our procedures.
