The Regulatory Initiatives Grid sets out the regulatory pipeline, in order to give firms a clear view of upcoming regulatory initiatives.
Among the initiatives included in the fifth edition of the Grid are those related to the Financial Services and Markets Bill that aims to reform the rules that regulate the UK’s capital markets, protect access to cash, introduce new consumer protections and harness innovation.
The Forum is comprised of the Bank of England (including the Prudential Regulation Authority), Financial Conduct Authority, Payment Systems Regulator, Competition and Markets Authority, Financial Reporting Council, The Pensions Regulator, and Information Commissioner’s Office, with HM Treasury attending as an observer member.
The Grid is published on a biannual basis. The first edition of the Grid was published in May 2020; the second edition was published in September 2020, the third edition in May 2021, and the fourth edition in November 2021.
