CRR Permissions: what should an application include?

​CRR Permissions  |  CRR Permissions: what should an application include?

The PRA finds it helpful for firms to provide the following information as part of an application for a CRR Permission:

  • a list of all the entities which require the CRR Permission, including any FCA solo regulated firms;
  • details of the CRR article under which the application is being made;
  • detailed information about the rationale for the CRR permission, including, for example, whether it is part of a wider group transaction/restructure;
  • detailed responses with respect to the CRR article conditions and relevant Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) or Implementing Technical Standards (ITS);
  • confirmation that the firm is content for the waiver/modification to be published on the Financial Services Register if approved, and if not, an explanation of why it would be inappropriate to do so, addressing the requirements set out in HMT Regulation 43; and
  • important timelines.

For certain types of applications, the PRA has set out the format and content of the supporting documentation it expects to receive.  The following notes are to assist firms on common applications and issues that arise when providing information to support their application.  However, these are not intended to be exhaustive nor a guarantee that an application will be approved.
