The Pensions Regulator (the Regulator) has updated its practice directions on notifiable events to reflect recent changes to the notifiable events requirements.
Under section 69 of the Pensions Act 2004 employers and trustees are required to notify the Regulator of certain “events”. The Regulator’s practice directions provide exemptions from this duty to notify.
The government recently removed three notifiable events from the notifiable events legislative framework. The practice directions have been updated to take account of this change.
For more information on the changes and the notifiable events generally see EPB briefing: The Pensions Act 2004; Obligation to report specific events to the Pensions Regulator – March 2009
