SI 2019/Draft: This draft enactment is laid in exercise of legislative powers under the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 in preparation for Brexit. This draft enactment proposes to amend UK subordinate legislation in relation to the European Economic Area’s (EEA) ‘financial services passport' which allows firms in EEA states to offer services in any other EEA state on the basis of their home state authorisation and to non-UK central counterparties and trade repositories which provide certain services in the UK under the European Market Infrastructure Regulation in order to address deficiencies in retained EU law. Without this instrument, where these firms do not enter the UK’s temporary regimes, they may not be able to meet existing contractual obligations or provide services. This could be detrimental to UK-based customers and could lead to disruption of services.

• amend the Central Counterparties (Amendment, etc, and Transitional Provision) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018,
