The Occupational Pension Schemes (Contracting-Out) Amendment Regulations 2011/1294

Final regulations have been issued. The contracting-out provisions were to have been included in miscellaneous amendment regulations but were held back following consultation.  

The regulations will amend the 1996 contracting-out regulations to take account of the withdrawal of GN28, used when assessing whether a scheme meets the reference scheme test.
