(b)where the Authority would not be so responsible, obtain the consent of the competent authority which would be responsible for supervision of that third-country group for the purposes of Article 53 of the banking consolidation directive, as applied by Article 7 of the capital adequacy directive, if alternative techniques were not applied.
