13.—(1) In this regulation “notified”, in relation to a requirement, means a requirement which was included in information which was received by the Regulator from the competent authority in the host member State in pursuance of Article 20(5) or (8) of the Directive and was forwarded by the Regulator—

(b)in accordance with Article 266(2) to the trustees or managers of the scheme,

as the case may be.

(2) Where the Regulator has granted approvals under Article 265 to the trustees or managers of a scheme in relation to one or more specified European employers it may revoke any or all of those approvals where it is satisfied by the trustees or managers of the scheme that—

(a)the scheme does not have any European members who have any accrued European rights, and

(b)there are not in relation to the scheme any survivors of a European member of the scheme who have any accrued European rights.

(4) Where the Regulator has granted approvals under Article 265 to the trustees or managers of a scheme in relation to one or more specified European employers and those European employers are all located in the same host member State, the criteria to be applied by the Regulator in reaching any decision relating to the revocation of any such approval are the seriousness, frequency and persistence of any failure—

(a)by the trustees or managers of the scheme to ensure that the scheme is operated in a way which is consistent with, or

(b)by the scheme to comply with,

any of the requirements described in paragraph (5).

(5) The requirements for the purposes of paragraph (4) for the purposes of any decision by the Regulator relating to the revocation of an approval are—

(6) Where the Regulator has granted approvals under Article 265 to the trustees or managers of a scheme in relation to more than one specified European employer and not all of those European employers are located in the same host member State, the criteria to be applied by the Regulator in reaching any decision relating to the revocation of any such approval are the seriousness, frequency and persistence of any failure—

(a)by the trustees or managers of the scheme to ensure that the scheme is operated in a way which is consistent with, or

(b)by the scheme to comply with,

any of the requirements described in paragraph (7).

(7) The requirements for the purposes of paragraph (6) for the purposes of any decision by the Regulator relating to the revocation of an approval are—
