    PRA Issues Direction on Capital Buffers, Finalizes PS1/21 on SM&CR

    January 22, 2021

    PRA published a direction for modification by consent of 5.1 to 5.3 and 5.5 of the Capital Buffers Part of the PRA Rulebook. The modifications apply where a Pillar 2A requirement, a global systemically important institution (G-SII) buffer, or other systemically important institution (O-SII) buffer has been imposed on a firm on an individual or a consolidated basis. The modifications should be read and used in conjunction with the voluntary requirement on capital buffers and Pillar 2A model requirements, which became effective on December 31, 2020. In addition, PRA published the policy statement PS1/21 on strengthening accountability via the Senior Managers & Certification Regime (SM&CR) forms updates. PS1/21 contains the amended Notifications Part of the PRA Rulebook (Appendix 1), the updated Notification Form (Appendix 2), and the SM&CR Form L (Appendix 3). The final rules and the updated versions of the forms became applicable from January 22, 2021.

    PS1/21 also provides feedback to responses to the proposed amendments (CP7/20) to the Notifications Part of the PRA Rulebook, Notifications Form, and SM&CR Form L. In CP7/20, PRA proposed to update SM&CR Form L to reinstate question 3.05, which requests firms making a notification to provide details of any disciplinary action taken. PRA also proposed to amend the Notification Form to reflect the new FCA address, following a move to new premises and the new FCA logo. In addition, PRA proposed to make minor consequential amendments to the Notification Form. These were deleting an incorrect reference to PRA as a limited company, updating references to the PRA Rulebook, and updating the General Data Protection Regulation notification. PRA received no responses to the consultation and, therefore, published the final policy as proposed.
