Restoration of regulatory own funds

7.—(1) If, having obtained an actuarial valuation and certification of the calculation of the regulatory own funds requirement for an occupational pension scheme, it appears to the trustees or managers of that scheme that the regulatory own funds requirement was not met as at the effective date of the actuarial valuation, the trustees or managers must take such steps as are necessary to ensure that the regulatory own funds requirement is met within two years after the effective date of that valuation.

(2) The trustees or managers must send the Regulator a report of the steps to be taken under paragraph (1) within a reasonable period after having obtained the actuarial valuation and certification of the calculation of the amount of the regulatory own funds requirement.

(3) Where paragraph (1) or (2) is not complied with, the Regulator may by order exercise either or both of the following powers—

(a)it may modify the scheme as regards the future accrual of benefits;

(b)it may impose a schedule of contributions specifying—

(i)the rates of contributions payable towards the scheme by, or on behalf of, the employer and the active members of the scheme, and

(ii)the dates on, or before, which such contributions are to be paid.

(4) Where paragraph (1) or (2) is not complied with, Article 10(3) to (9) of the 1995 Order (civil penalties) shall apply to a trustee or manager who has failed to take all reasonable steps to ensure compliance as if this regulation were made under Part II of that Order (occupational pensions).
