This Practice Note explains the ‘Connected Contracts Exclusion’—Financial Services and Markets Act 2000, (Regulated Activities) Order 2001, SI 2001/544, article 72B (RAO). Section 19 of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (FSMA) contains the ‘general prohibition’, which makes undertaking a regulated activity without authorisation a criminal offence. RAO, SI 2001/544, Pt XVII sets out a number of exclusions that apply to certain regulated activity. RAO, SI 2001/544, article 72B transposed the provisions of Article 1(2) of Directive 2002/92/EC, the Insurance Mediation Directive(IMD) and provides a general exclusion for activities carried on by a provider of relevant goods or services concerning connected contracts of insurance. The Directive 2016/97/EU, Insurance Distribution Directive (IDD) introduces ancilliary insurance intermediaries, and is a new category. The Perimeter Guidance Manual (PERG), provides useful guidance at PERG 5.11, and is described in this Practice Note.
