These Regulations prescribe forms to be used in filing particulars with the registrar of companies in connection with the new regime for the registration of branches of Part XXIII companies, introduced by the Part XXIII Companies and Credit and Financial Institutions (Branch Disclosure) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1993 (S.R. 1993 No. 198).

These also prescribe amended forms (Forms 641, 644(4)(a) and 644(4)(b)) in connection with the registration of a place of business of a Part XXIII company pursuant to Article 641, and the registration of names of Part XXIII Companies. There is, however, a transitional provision permitting the continued use of the existing forms for a period of 12 months following the commencement of these regulations.
