(a)sections 104 and 107 to 114 of the Act;

(b)any regulations made under section 108 of the Act; and

(c)Part I of Schedule 12 to the Act;

apply in relation to schemes for the transfer of the whole or any part of the business carried on by one or more members of the Society or former underwriting members (“the members concerned”) in the same way as they apply in relation to insurance business transfer schemes, but only if the conditions specified by article 4 are satisfied.

4.  The conditions referred to in article 3 are—

(a)that the scheme results in the business transferred being carried on from an establishment of the transferee in an EEA State;

(b)that the Council of Lloyd’s has by resolution authorised one person to act, in connection with the transfer for the members concerned, as transferor; and

(c)that a copy of the resolution has been given to the Authority.

5.—(1) The provisions which apply by virtue of paragraph (a) and (b) of article 3 do so as if—

(a)any reference to the authorised person concerned were a reference to the members concerned; and

(b)anything done in connection with the transfer by the person authorised in accordance with paragraph (a) of article 4 had been done by the members concerned for whom he acted.

(2) In the application of Part I of Schedule 12 to the Act to the members concerned, the conditions in sub-paragraphs (2)(a), (3)(a) and (4)(a) of paragraph 1 of that Schedule are treated as satisfied.
