(2) Either or both of the regulators may make rules specifying those persons (or classes of persons) in respect of whom a class 1 or class 2 firm is not required to give a notice to the appropriate regulator under paragraph (1).

(3) In relation to an article 2 notice (or a revised article 2 notice)—

(a)the notice must specify the post-implementation controlled functions(16) that P will perform on and after 7th March 2016 (the “notified functions”);

(b)each of the notified functions must be an equivalent function in relation to one or more pre-implementation controlled functions which, immediately before 7th March 2016, P has approval to perform; and

(c)if the notice concerns the performance of a designated senior management function in relation to a relevant authorised person(17) it must contain, or be accompanied by, a statement setting out the aspects of the affairs of the relevant authorised person which it is intended the person who is the subject of the notice will be responsible for managing in performing the notified functions.

(4) If—

(a)an article 2 notice is given before 7th March 2016 (whether or not that notice was given before 8th February 2016), and

(b)the conditions in article 3 are met (the “conditions for continuing approval”),

the pre-implementation approval concerned has effect on and after 7th March 2016 in accordance with article 4.

(5) If an article 2 notice has been given in respect of a person but in relation to one or more pre-implementation controlled functions for which approval has been given in respect of that person—

(a)that notice does not specify a notified function, or

(b)the notified function specified in that notice is not an equivalent function,

the pre-implementation approval given in respect of that person ceases to have effect at the beginning of 7th March 2016 in relation to the pre-implementation controlled functions concerned.

(6) If notice is required under paragraph (1) in respect of a person but before 7th March 2016—

(a)notice has not been given in respect of that person; or

(b)a notice to which paragraph (3)(c) applies has been given in respect of that person but that notice does not meet the requirements in paragraph (3)(c),

the pre-implementation approval given in respect of that person ceases to have effect at the beginning of 7th March 2016 in relation to all of the functions for which it has been given.

Conditions for continuation of an approval

3.  In relation to a pre-implementation approval, the conditions for continuing approval are that—

(a)the pre-implementation approval has not been withdrawn before 7th March 2016; and

(b)in relation to each notified function specified in an article 2 notice concerning the person (“P”) to whom the pre-implementation approval has been given—

(i)on the notification date P is performing a function which falls within the description of that notified function; and

(ii)immediately before 7th March 2016 P is continuing to perform that function.

Treatment of a continuing approval

4.—(1) In relation to a person (“P”) a continuing approval is to be treated as if it had been given—

(a)in relation to the notified functions specified in an article 2 notice concerning P, and

(b)by the appropriate regulator.

(2) Where, immediately before 7th March 2016, the pre-implementation approval is subject to a suspension or limitation imposed under section 66(3)(disciplinary powers)(18), that suspension or limitation is from the beginning of 7th March 2016 to be treated as if it were imposed by the appropriate regulator in respect of the notified functions.

(3) Where, immediately before 7th March 2016, the pre-implementation approval is subject to a restriction imposed under section 66(3)(ab)(disciplinary powers)(19), that restriction is from the beginning of 7th March 2016 to be treated as if it were a condition imposed under section 66(3)(ab).

(4) This article applies whether or not one of the regulators has given a warning notice or a decision notice to P under—

(a)section 63 (withdrawal of approval)(20);

(b)section 63B (procedure and right to refer to tribunal)(21); or

(c)section 67 (disciplinary measures: procedure and right to refer to Tribunal)(22).

Regulators’ power to impose requirements for an article 2 notice

(b)require, or permit, an article 2 notice and an article 11 notice to be contained in a single document.

(3) The PRA must consult the FCA before—

(b)the person giving the notice discovers that any part of that information is inaccurate,

the authorised person concerned must before that date submit a revised notice to each regulator (“a revised article 2 notice”).

(2) If the authorised person concerned submits one or more revised article 2 notices which update the notified functions specified in the article 2 notice, articles 2, 3 and 4 apply as if references in those articles to “notified functions” were to functions specified in the last revised notice received by the regulators.

Application of section 63ZA to a continuing approval

7.  Section 63ZA (variation of senior manager’s approval at request of relevant authorised person)(23) applies to a continuing approval to perform a designated senior management function in relation to the carrying on of a regulated activity by a relevant authorised person as it applies to an approval that is granted subject to conditions, but as if references to the appropriate regulator (24) were to the regulator who is treated under article 4(1)(b) as having given the continuing approval.

(a)subsection (1) were omitted,

(b)the reference in subsection (2) to the granting of the application were a reference to 7th March 2016, and

(c)the reference in that subsection to a statement of responsibilities included a reference to a statement under article 2(3)(c).
