Instruments – the definitive version of the rules
Section 138G of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 requires the PRA to exercise its rule-making powers in writing, in a document the Act calls a ‘rule-making instrument’, and to make all such instruments available.  The PRA publishes its instruments online.  This fulfils its obligation to publish its rules.  The definitive version of the rules at any particular time is the version contained in the legal instruments.  The instruments are consolidated into the Rulebook online.
