UK Conduct Regulator Issues Draft Directions on No-Deal Brexit Temporary Transitional Power09/26/2019The U.K. Financial Conduct Authority has updated the directions under the temporary transitional power granted to it in preparation for a no-deal Brexit. The TTP was granted to the U.K. regulators under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 as a means of granting transitional relief from regulatory requirements where the requirements have been introduced or have changed as a result of onshoring financial services legislation. In July 2019, the FCA announced an extension of its use of the TTP from June 30, 2020 to December 31, 2020 in light of the change to the date that the U.K. was due to leave the EU to October 31, 2019. The updated directions reflect that extension as well as prudential instruments that have been published since the draft directions were originally published in March 2019.
