Hogan Lovells

Key Dates

Decision issued on 16 July 2018.


The Upper Tribunal has ruled that in references of decisions made by the Pensions Regulator under section 3 Pensions Act 1995 to prohibit an individual from being a pension scheme trustee, the correct burden of proof was the ordinary civil standard (that is, proof on the balance of probabilities).  The two individuals concerned had argued that the criminal burden of proof (beyond all reasonable doubt) should apply.
