The PRA has written1 to non-Solvency II insurance firms about the implementation of the Senior Insurance Managers Regime (SIMR). It reminds firms that they have until 8 February 2016 to make grandfathering applications as SIMR will be in force from 7 March 2016. The PRA has also highlighted that firms will need to allocate certain prescribed responsibilities to senior insurance management functions and will need to produce a scope of responsibility document for each individual.
