In view of the current international recommendations and good practices, the MFSA has notified all authorised firms, recognised and licensed persons that with immediate effect and for an interim period, the MFSA’s Supervision Unit will be increasing its use of remote data gathering supervisory tools. This includes increasing and widening the scope of pre-visit documentation requests, issuing questionnaires and conducting Board and Officer interviews via teleconferencing or video link.
The MFSA will be continuing with its planned schedule of inspections adopting the aforementioned new procedures and will not postpone inspections unless specific circumstances so require it.
