1.1 The Office for National Statistics (ONS) asked the Office for Statistics Regulation (OSR) to assess its Funded Occupation Pension Schemes (FOPS) statistics. In requesting this assessment, the Financial Data Sources (FDS) pension statistics team at ONS is demonstrating its commitment to further developing the statistics so that they meet the standards required for National Statistics and the Code of Practice for Statistics. Our assessment has found widespread good practice in the development and production of these statistics. We have identified two actions for ONS to fulfil in order for FOPS statistics to be designated as National Statistics. ONS has committed to implement these by the end of October 2022.
