PRA has written to non-Solvency 2 insurance firms on the implementation of the Senior Insurance Managers Regime (SIMR). It emphasises that SIMR goes live on 7 March 2016 so firms wishing to grandfather individuals will need to submit the necessary documents by 8 February 2016. It also reminds firms of the requirement in due course to allocate certain prescribed responsibilities to senior insurance management functions, produce a scope of responsibility document for each individual mapping to the new regime and produce a governance map.
