Following publication of its first consultation in October, the FCA has published its promised second consultation paper proposing further changes to be made to the Handbook and EU-derived Binding Technical Standards. These amendments reflect the temporary permissions regime (see item above) among others. The FCA is also consulting on guidance on how non-Handbook guidance should be interpreted after exit day and on its approach to forms appearing in the Handbook.
The FCA states that this consultation is not proposing wider policy changes and is not making other changes unrelated to Brexit in the Handbook or Binding Technical Standards.
The closing date for comments is 21 December 2018.
