PhonepayPlus publishes Vulnerability Guidance consultation
23 March 2016
Today we are publishing a public consultation on vulnerability guidance. The consultation runs until Wednesday 18 May 2016.
The proposed Guidance is intended to:
- Assist providers to interpret the Code and remain compliant with it
- Assist providers to proactively ensure they mitigate any risks of taking unfair advantage of vulnerable consumers
- Contribute to building trust in the market
- Define who is likely to be considered as vulnerable consumers by detailing some of the characteristics and circumstances that may lead to a situation of vulnerability
The Guidance Development Consultation document can be found here.
We invite all stakeholders to consider the proposed Vulnerability Guidance. Responses should be submitted by email to Jonathan Levack firstname.lastname@example.org by 18 May 2016.
More details on responding are available on page 6 of the consultation document.
