Update 7 December: Due to essential maintenance ahead of the extension of the SM&CR to insurers, the Financial Services Register will be unavailable from 17:00 Friday 7 December to 09:00 Monday 10 December. Please see the Financial Services Register for more information.
Update 1 October: We published Consultation Paper (CP) 21/18 'Regulatory transactions: Changes to notification and application forms', relevant to all PRA-authorised firms as well as firms that have a qualifying holding, or which intend to acquire a qualifying holding in a PRA-authorised firm. This consultation closes on Thursday 1 November 2018.
Update 28 September: We are aware that firms are considering the forthcoming cessation of the waiver by consent (WBC) for Continuity of Access rules (Depositor Protection Part of the PRA Rulebook (DPP) 13.4-13.8 inclusive) and Continuity of Access reporting requirements (DPP 15.2-15.4 inclusive and 15.7). The WBC ends on 1 December 2019 – materials are currently available on the Waivers and modifications of rules webpage. Firms that are subject to the WBC or other continuity of access waivers should wait for further communication from the PRA before instigating any planning or projects to implement Continuity of Access from 1 December 2019. The Bank of England and the PRA are still considering the appropriate approach. As we did when the policy was initiated we will ensure that firms have at least 18 months to implement changes should they be needed.
