(b)a report by an actuary; and

(b)to the desirability of maintaining as nearly constant a rate as possible.

(6) An individual adjustment is any percentage or amount by which in the actuary’s opinion contributions at the common rate should in the case of a particular body be increased or reduced by reason of any circumstances peculiar to that body.

(b)the amount of the liabilities arising in respect of such members,

during the period covered by the certificate.

(9) The Committee must provide the actuary preparing a valuation or a rates and adjustment certificate with the consolidated final accounts of the fund and such other information as he requests.

(c)to any other body which is or may become liable to make payments to that fund.

(11) The Committee must also send to the Department –

(a)a copy of the consolidated final accounts with which the actuary was provided under paragraph (9); and

(b)a summary of the assets of the fund at the valuation date (unless such a summary is contained in the report).
