Investment Exchanges and Clearing Houses Act 2006

Section 2: Procedural and other supplementary provisions

11.This section inserts new sections 300B, 300C, 300D and 300E into the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000.

12.Section 300B imposes a duty on recognised bodies to notify the FSA when they propose to make new regulatory provision. It also extends the FSA's existing power under section 293 of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (power to make rules requiring recognised bodies to notify the FSA of certain events and information) to include a power to specify types of proposed new regulatory provision or circumstances in which proposed new regulatory provision does not need to be notified, and to make procedural provision in relation to the notification of proposed new regulatory provision.

13.Section 300C provides for an initial period in which the FSA can consider whether to call in a proposal for further scrutiny. A recognised body may not make a change to its regulatory provision before it has notified it to the FSA, or during the initial period (unless the FSA notifies it before the end of the period that it that it is not calling in the proposal). If the FSA decides not to call in the proposal during the initial period, the body may make the change to its regulatory provision.

14.Section 300D sets out what is to happen if the FSA calls in a proposed change to regulatory provision for examination. It provides that the FSA must publish a notice, giving details of the proposal that it has called in and setting a period for making representations; it sets a period within which the FSA must take a decision about a proposal it has called in; and it provides that the proposed change to a body's regulatory provision cannot be made while any legal proceedings are pending.

15.Section 300E contains supplementary provision.
