EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order is made, as required by paragraph 2(1) of Schedule 3 to the Pension Schemes Act 1993 (c.48), in the year beginning 1st January 2015, and specifies the necessary revaluation percentages for the purpose of the revaluation on or after 1st January 2016 of benefits under occupational pension schemes, as required by section 84 of, and Schedule 3 to, that Act. It is not necessary to specify a lower revaluation percentage for revaluation periods which start before 1st January 2009.

This Order amends an existing regulatory regime by a pre-determined formula, and the administrative impact of its implementation is negligible. A full impact assessment is not necessary for such legislation.

(1)

1993 c. 48; paragraph 2(1) of Schedule 3 was amended by the Pensions Act 2008 (c. 30), section 101 and Schedule 2, paragraphs 1 and 3(1) and (2).
