BoE publishes approach to financial services legislation under the EUWA

The Bank of England (BoE) and the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) published a package of materials updating firms on the BoE's regulatory and supervisory approach in relation to its work on EU withdrawal. The package builds on its previous engagement with firms on their preparations around EU withdrawal, and acts as a contingency for a scenario in which the implementation period, which was agreed in principle as part of the UK's Withdrawal Agreement with the EU, does not take effect on 29 March 2019. It reflects close coordination between the Bank and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) whose package of communications was also released. The package of materials includes (1) the BoE's approach to financial services legislation under the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (EU(W)A 2018) (updated February 2019)
