SUP 10A.4 Specification of functions

SUP 10A.4.1R

Each of the functions described in SUP 10A.4.4 R (the table of FCA controlled function) is an FCA controlled function.

SUP 10A.4.2R

Part 1 of the table of FCA controlled functions applies in relation to an FCA-authorised person. It also applies in relation to an appointed representative for the purposes of SUP 10A.1.15 R to SUP 10A.1.16BR4 (Appointed representatives) whether its principal is an FCA-authorised person or a PRA-authorised person. Part 2 applies in relation to a PRA-authorised person, except in relation to CBTL business.2

SUP 10A.4.2AG

6For the purposes of SUP 10A (and SYSC, APER, COCON and DEPP) a large non-directive insurer is treated as and included in the Glossary definition of a Solvency II firm. For large non-directive insurers, references to parts of the PRA Rulebook applicable to Solvency II Firms are to be read as references to the corresponding parts of the PRA Rulebook applying to large non directive insurers.

SUP 10A.4.3G

The fact that a person may be FCA-approved for one purpose does not have the effect of bringing all his activities within that FCA controlled function.
