With regard to signatures for the purposes of Annual confirmation of compliance with the RCB Regulations and the RCB Sourcebook / Application for admission to the register of issuers and register of regulated covered bonds, please note the FCA expectations for wet-ink signatures in light of coronavirus (Covid-19) restrictions.
In light of these restrictions, until 31 October 2020, the FCA directs that firms may use any type of electronic signature if providing forms ‘RCB2 Annex 1’ or ‘RCB3 Annex 1’ electronically.
With regard to the Annual confirmation of compliance with the RCB Regulations and the RCB Sourcebook, in light of the potential operational difficulties to complete the confirmation due to Covid-19 restrictions, the FCA directs that any confirmation due on or before 30 September 2020 is eligible for a 2 month extension, to be agreed in advance of the current due date with the FCA.
With regard to the Annual confirmation of compliance with the RCB Regulations and the RCB Sourcebook attestation period, the FCA directs that subsequent confirmations must be made on the anniversary of the original confirmation date unless otherwise agreed in advance with the FCA.
