BoE has extended the notification window for the temporary permissions regime (TPR) until the end of April 11, 2019, with respect to the European Council and the UK Government’s decision on delay to the process of the withdrawal of UK from EU.
Additionally, BoE published a supplementary PRA Direction that clarifies the position where a firm that has submitted a notification to enter the TPR wants to withdraw its notification before exit day. If a firm withdraws its notification in writing before exit day then the firm will not enter the TPR. The European Economic Area firms that were passporting prior to exit day and do not enter the TPR may enter the Financial Services Contracts Regime (FSCR) automatically on the exit day if they require authorization in the UK to continue servicing their contracts.
