BSOG 1.5 Electronic communications

BSOG 1.5.1G

The Electronic Communications Order allows a building society to communicate electronically with its members on constitutional matters, including those referred to in later chapters of this Guide, if certain conditions are met. The Order covers communications about the business to be transacted at annual general meetings. It also covers communications on occasional matters, such as special meetings, mergers and transfers of business. In all cases the consent of the member or other person to the means of communication must be obtained.

BSOG 1.5.2G

The Electronic Communications Order does not amend the 1986 Act requirement to submit certain returns to be placed on its public file. Nor does it affect the supervisory financial returns required to be submitted by the rules in the Authoritys Supervision manual.

BSOG 1.5.3G

This Guide reflects law and practice as at 23rd November 2006and does not take into account subsequent developments.
