Published on 14 November 2018

Overview

This consultation paper (CP) sets out the Prudential Regulation Authority’s (PRA) proposals relating to:

  • periodic fees for designated investment firms (DIFs); 
  • Part VII transaction fees for insurers;
  • internal model application fees for insurers;
  • internal model application and model maintenance fees for DIFs;
  • rules relating to the provision of relief from PRA fees in exceptional circumstances; 
  • other minor corrections to PRA fees rules; and
  • updates to Supervisory Statement (SS) 3/16 ‘Fees: PRA approach and application’.

The proposals aim to ensure that the methodologies for determining PRA fees for DIFs, life insurers and general insurers are appropriate to the risks these firms pose to the PRA objectives. Other changes set out in the CP are intended to ensure that fees relating to Solvency II models are applied consistently.

This CP is relevant to all PRA-regulated firms but particularly insurers and DIFs, as well as firms which have, or intend to apply in the future for, Solvency II or Capital Requirements Regulation(CRR) models. This CP is in addition to the usual, annual consultation on fees.

Implementation

The proposed implementation date for the proposals contained in this consultation is Friday 1 March 2019.
