BIPRU Sch 6 Rules than can be waived

1The rules in BIPRU may be waived by the appropriate regulator under section 138A of the Act (Modification or waiver of rules). However, if the rules incorporate requirements laid down in European directives, it will not be possible for the appropriate regulator to grant a waiver that would be incompatible with the United Kingdom's responsibilities under those directives. It therefore follows that if a rule in BIPRU contains provisions which derive partly from a directive, and partly not, the appropriate regulator will be able to consider a waiver of the latter requirements only, unless the directive provisions are optional rather than mandatory.
