MIR 2.5.9

The Regulator may have regard to the arrangements a Recognised Body makes to structure itself and to allocate responsibility for decisions so that it can continue to take proper regulatory decisions notwithstanding any conflicts of interest, including:

(a) the systems and controls intended to ensure that confidential information is only used for proper purposes;
(b) the size and composition of the Governing Body and relevant committees;
(c) the roles and responsibilities of Key Individuals, especially where they also have responsibilities in other organisations;
(d) the arrangements for transferring decisions or responsibilities to alternates in individual cases; and
(e) the arrangements made to ensure that individuals who may have a permanent conflict of interest in certain circumstances are excluded from the process of taking decisions (or receiving information) about matters in which that conflict of interest would be relevant.
