Once a quarter, we consult on proposed miscellaneous amendments to our Handbook. These tend to be minor changes but we still want to get your feedback on our proposals.
What are we consulting on this quarter?
We are proposing to:
- make certain consequential changes to rules and guidance relating to controllers
- make consequential changes to various RDR forms as a result of the Senior Managers’ Regime
- add text to EG 7 to reflect the FCA’s ability to apply to the Court under section 89NA for a voting rights suspension order
- make consequential changes to the Handbook for Solvency II and non-Directive firms
- make changes to the Supervision manual (SUP) to amend the reporting requirement and submission methods for some regulated firms
- make changes to the Training and Competence sourcebook (TC) list of appropriate qualifications
- make amendments to our Consumer Credit sourcebook (CONC), the Perimeter Guidance manual (PERG) and the Glossary of terms
- make changes to address the impact on LR (Listing Rules) of changes to PR (Prospectus Rules) proposed in CP15/28
- make clarifications on CRDIV Pillar 2 and financial conglomerates
