Regulatory transactions: changes to notification and application forms - CP21/18
In this consultation paper (CP), the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) sets out its proposals for changes to various PRA forms relating to applications or notifications for regulatory transactions. The CP is 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.
Summary of proposals
The proposals would make amendments to the following Parts of the PRA Rulebook (see Appendix 1):
- Change in Control;
- Insurance Special Purpose Vehicles (ISPVs); and
The PRA is proposing to make changes to notification and application forms in the Parts of the PRA Rulebook listed above. The reasons for the proposed changes are explained in Chapter 1. The proposals have been combined into a single consultation to avoid the PRA publishing multiple separate consultations on the same forms and to help ensure PRA resources are used efficiently.
