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. Some of the proposed Brexit changes will only come into effect if the UK leaves the EU on 31 January 2020 without an implementation period.
What we are consulting on this quarter
We are proposing:
- clarification of the rules relating to Financial Services Compensation Scheme claims against appointed representatives and principals
- changes to the Listing Rules’ requirements, which cross-refer to the Prospectus Regulation, for information to be put on display
- amendments to the Listing Rules to include a requirement mandating the disclosure of rights attached to the securities
- minor amendments to the Handbook to reflect changes made by the Financial Guidance and Claims Act
- changes to the Perimeter Guidance Manual (PERG) 15.3 on payment accounts
- changes to regulatory reporting requirements
- further Brexit-related changes to Handbook & BTS following extension of Article 50, which will only come into effect if the UK leaves the EU without an implementation period
