Mauritius - The Financial Services Commission (the “Commission”) publishes its Enforcement Manual (“Manual”) this 12 June 2020.


The Manual provides an overview of the Commission’s approach to enforcement and the exercise of its enforcement powers. It sets out general policies and procedures which the Commission uses as guidance in detecting, investigating, and taking actions in cases where the relevant laws and /or any other relevant guidelines have been breached.

This Manual is issued with the intent of increasing transparency, certainty, and consistency, and, more generally, to promote the rule-of-law principles that underpin all of the Commission’s enforcement actions.

Chief Executive, Dhanesswurnath Thakoor, said

  • “The publication of the Enforcement Manual delivers on the Commission’s commitment to facilitate a better understanding and give broader perspective about the Commission’s efforts to meet its statutory objectives, vision and mission. The Manual aims at increasing the level of clarity and transparency in our work, which in turn promotes a better understanding of our credible deterrence approach.”

The Commission does not intend, by the publication of this Manual, to waive any applicable privileges or protections.

In furtherance, this Manual is not intended to, does not, and may not be relied upon to create any rights be it substantive or procedural and is not enforceable by any party in any matter, civil or criminal.

The Manual will periodically be reviewed and updated.
