MCOB 1.5 Application to appointed representatives

MCOB 1.5.1G
  1. (1)

    Although MCOB does not apply directly to a firm's appointed representatives, a firm will always be responsible for the acts and omissions of its appointed representatives in carrying on business for which the firm has accepted responsibility (section 39(3) of the Act). In determining whether a firm has complied with any provision of MCOB, anything done or omitted by a firm's appointed representative (when acting as such) will be treated as having been done or omitted by the firm (section 39(4) of the Act).

  2. (2)

    Firms should refer to SUP 12 (Appointed representatives), which sets out requirements which apply to firms using appointed representatives.
