What is the regulator's role in relation to automatic enrolment?
The Pensions Regulator is the UK regulator of work-based pension schemes. We work with trustees, employers, pension specialists and business advisers, giving guidance on what is expected of them.
We also have functions under the Pensions Act 2008 and a statutory objective to maximise compliance with the employer duties (mainly automatic enrolment) under that Act.
We use our powers flexibly, reasonably and appropriately, with the aim of putting things right and keeping schemes, and employers on the right track for the long term.
There are certain legal duties you must meet for automatic enrolment. If you don’t comply with your duties, you may be fined..
