According to art. 6, par 9 of the Code, with reference to the functions of assessment and verification, the Authority is handed by Guardia di Finanza - Market protection Task Force.
Thanks to this cooperation, operating on the basis of a specific Memorandum of Understanding, inspections have been increased by means of the activity of mixed groups, composed by personnel of the Authority and Guardia di Finanza agents.
The intervention of this military force in the Authority inspection activity is particularly effective, as the synergy in action has facilitated the documents consultation procedures, especially in corporate matters, as well as the evaluation of the SOAs internal structure.
The Task Force also brings valid support with reference to the activity wich follows the cross-checking of fake certification, since this Force is assigned, inter alia, to crime preliminary assessment, before crime notices are transmitted to Criminal Court.
