Modification by consent: IFPRU 11.6.3R

Find out about modifications by consent for contractual recognition of bail-in rules - IFPRU 11.6.3R.

The FCA has transposed Article 55 of the Recovery and Resolution Directive (RRD) through the rules in IFPRU 11.6. The unmodified rules require firms and holding companies to include a term in the provisions governing certain third-country law liabilities under which the creditor recognises and agrees that the liability may be subject to write down and conversion powers by a resolution authority.

IFPRU 11.6 was implemented on 1 January 2016, and this modification by consent applies to IFPRU 11.6.3R where compliance with that rule is impracticable.
