The FSA has published future versions of the Handbooks of the FCA and PRA, together with a Guide to how the Handbook rules have been designated. The FSA Handbook has been split between the two new regulators to form two new Handbooks, although some rules have been adopted by both. The Handbooks will come into effect on 1 April 2013.
The FSA has also published the following instruments following the publication of the new handbooks:
- Legal Cutover (FCA and PRA Handbooks (Glossary)) Instrument 2013
- Legal Cutover (Financial Conduct Authority and Prudential Regulation Authority Handbooks (General Provisions)) Instrument 2013
- FCA and PRA Handbook Designation Instrument 2013
- FCA and PRA Handbook Designation (General Modifications) Instrument 2013
- FCA and PRA Handbook Designation (Particular Modifications) Instrument 2013
The FSA has also published a new webpagewhich sets out future handbook forms and templates.

The final Handbook rules and provisions on these more substantive matters will be published before legal cutover, and included in the online versions of the Handbooks.
