This BSA paper responds to the FCA's consultation, Our Future Mission.
The BSA supports the PRA's proposals regarding the duty of responsibility and the application of the conduct rules to notified/standard NEDs, which are consistent with earlier representations made by the BSA.
This paper responds to FCA Discussion Paper 16/4 (the DP).
This response supports the proposals in, and comments on, FCA 16/26, which consults on guidance on how the FCA will enforce the 'duty of responsibility', which is now in force under the Bank of England and Financial Services Act 2016.
This BSA response supports the proposal in FCA CP16/27 that 'standard' - sometimes called 'notified' - non-executive directors (NEDs) should be subject to the regulator's individual conduct rules and to rule 4 of the senior conduct rules
We argue for a later implementation date and the development of a more proportionate approach to expected credit loss provisioning.
More detail needed on how regulations will work in practice.
The BSA submission ahead of the Autumn Statement
Knowing that changes to the standard will be carried out only within a triennial review brings certainty to our sector. Building societies can plan with the assurance that FRS 102 is constant, and not subject to regular change.
We urge the PPF to amend its rules on the mortgage age variable for this triennium. Its rigid reliance on Companies House data disadvantages mutuals and other non-corporates.
