EBA, FCA, and PRA announced that they have agreed on a template for the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that sets out the expectations for supervisory cooperation and information-sharing arrangements between UK and EU/European Economic Area national authorities. The template will serve as the basis for bilateral MoUs that are being negotiated and signed by the relevant EU competent authorities and the UK authorities. The MoUs will only take effect in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
The template covers both general concepts of information exchange and supervisory cooperation and specific aspects of cooperation in performing the most common supervisory tasks. Its aim is to ensure that there are no breakdowns in the supervision of cross-border financial institutions in the no-deal scenario. The template is similar to the MoUs already concluded between the EU and other non-EU, third country, supervisory authorities.
