BREXIT: The UK is leaving EU on Exit Day (as defined in the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018). This has an impact on this Practice Note. To ensure the effective continuation of legislation in the UK after Exit Day (in the event of a no-deal Brexit), it is necessary for numerous statutory instruments to be made. One of these is the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019, SI 2019/632. Pt 3 of the Regulations contains amendments to the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Regulated Activities) Order 2001, SI 2001/544 (RAO). Also, Financial Services (Miscellaneous) (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019, SI 2019/710, Part 3 and the Electronic Commerce and Solvency 2 (Amendment etc) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019, SI 2019/1361, Pt 3 proposes minor amendments to the RAO. The parts of both Regulations relating to the RAO will come into force on Exit Day.
