The Pensions Regulator (TPR) will open a consultation on planned changes to its codes of practice by the end of the year.
Speaking at PP Live this morning (13 July) TPR chief executive Charles Counsell said the regulator's 15 codes were set to be condensed into "one web-based modular code".
He said: "We are in the process of a complete revision to our codes of practice which we believe will be much better to read and easier to understand."
Counsell said an open consultation for feedback on the new code was likely to be launched towards the end of the year.
He added that the regulator would also publish its long-term strategy imminently following delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
"We were on the cusp of publishing our long-term strategy, but it wasn't the right time to publish it," he said.
"But we do intend to publish it in the autumn, having first reviewed it to take into account the impact of Covid-19."
