SUP 13.1 Application and purpose

Application

SUP 13.1.1 G

This chapter applies to a UK firm, that is, a person whose head office is in the United Kingdom and which is entitled to carry on an activity in another EEA State subject to the conditions of a Single Market Directive. Such an entitlement is referred to in the Act as an EEA right and its exercise is referred to in the Handbook as passporting.1

SUP 13.1.2 G

This chapter also applies to a UK firm which wishes to establish a branch in, or provide cross border services into, Gibraltar. The Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Gibraltar) Order 2001 provides that a UK firm is to be treated as having an entitlement corresponding to its EEA right, to establish a branch in, or provide cross border services into, Gibraltar under any of the Single Market Directives. So, references in this chapter to an EEA State or an EEA right include references to Gibraltar and the entitlement under the Gibraltar Order6respectively. 2

6
SUP 13.1.3 G

This chapter does not apply to:

  1. (1)

    a firm established in an EEA State other than the United Kingdom; passporting by such a firm in or into the United Kingdom is a matter for its Home State regulator although guidance is given in 4SUP 13A4 (Qualifying for authorisation under the Act);

  2. (2)

    other overseas firms (that is, overseas firms established outside the EEA); such firms are not entitled to passport into another EEA State and, where relevant, may need to obtain authorisation in each EEA State in which they carry on business;

  3. (3)

    any insurance activity by way of provision of services which is provided by an EEA firm participating in a community co-insurance operation otherwise than as leading insurer; article 190(2) of the Solvency II Directive10 provides that only the leading insurer in such an operation is required to complete any passporting formalities (see also article 11 of the Regulated Activities Order); or

    10
  4. (4)

    the marketing of the units of a UCITS scheme by its management company in another EEA State under the UCITS Directive (see paragraph 20B of Part III of Schedule 3 to the Act and COLL 12.4 (UCITS product passport)8).3

    87
SUP 13.1.3A G

9Other than the notification requirements in SUP 13.5.1AA R and SUP 13.5.2-A R and the related guidance in SUP 13.5.1B G, SUP 13.5.2A G and SUP 13.5.7 G, this chapter does not apply to a UK firm in relation to its exercise of an EEA right under the auction regulation to provide services or establish a branch in another EEA state. This is because a UK firm is not subject to the requirements in Schedule 3 to the Act in respect of its exercise of that EEA right.

SUP 13.1.4 G

Purpose

SUP 13.1.5 G

This chapter gives guidance on Schedule 3 to the Act for a UK firm which wishes to exercise its EEA right and establish a branch in, or provide cross border services into, another EEA State. That is, when a UK firm wishes to establish its first branch in, or provide cross border services for the first time into, a particular EEA State.

SUP 13.1.6 G

The chapter also explains how a UK firm which has already established a branch in, or is providing cross border services into, another EEA State, may change the details of its branch or of the cross border services it is providing: for example, where a UK firm wishes to establish additional branches in an EEA State in which it has already established a branch where this would result in a change to the details provided previously. Such changes are governed by the EEA Passport Rights Regulations.

SUP 13.2 Introduction

SUP 13.2.1 G

This chapter gives guidance to UK firms. In most cases UK firms will be authorised persons under the Act. However, under the CRD2, a subsidiary of a firm which is a credit institution6 meets the criteria set out in that Directive also has an EEA right. Such an unauthorised subsidiary is known as a financial institution. References in this chapter to a UK firm include a financial institution. The chapter does not provide guidance for Solvency II firms. Solvency II firms should consult the relevant parts of the PRA Rulebook and the PRA website at: http://www.bankofengland.co.uk/pra/Pages/authorisations/passporting/notifying.aspx as the PRA is the appropriate UK regulator for Solvency II firms.6

2
SUP 13.2.2 G

A UK firm should be aware that the guidance is the FCA's5 interpretation of the Single Market Directives, the Act and the legislation made under the Act. The guidance is not exhaustive and is not a substitute for firms consulting the legislation or taking their own legal advice in the United Kingdom and in the relevant EEA States.

5
SUP 13.2.3 G

In some circumstances, a UK firm that is carrying on business which is outside the scope of the Single Market Directives has a right under the Treaty to carry on that business.6

1 1 7 7 1 4 4 1 1 1 1 7 7
SUP 13.2.4 G

7In SUP 13 the "appropriate UK regulator" amounts to whichever of the FCA and the PRA is the competent authority for authorising the relevant UKfirm.

SUP 13.2.5 G

3A UKfirm that is an AIFM will only be entitled to carry on an activity under AIFMD under a passport in another EEA State if it is a full-scope UK AIFM.

SUP 13.2.6 G

5As set out in article 32(1) of the MCD, a UKfirm will only be able to carry on MCD credit intermediation activity in relation to an MCD credit agreement offered by a non-credit institution in an EEA state if that EEA state permits non-credit institutions to offer MCD credit agreements.

SUP 13.3 Establishing a branch in another EEA State

What constitutes a branch

SUP 13.3.1 G

Guidance on what constitutes a branch is given in SUP App 36. Note that if a UK MiFID investment firm is seeking to use a tied agent established in another EEA State, the rules in SUP 13 will apply as if that firm were seeking to establish a branch in that EEA State unless the firm has already established a branch in that EEA State (paragraph 20A of Schedule 3 to the Act).8

The conditions for establishing a branch

SUP 13.3.2 G

A UK firm17 cannot establish a branch in another EEA State for the first time under an EEA right unless the relevant13 conditions in paragraphs 19(2), (4) and (5)12 of Part III of Schedule 3 to the Act are satisfied. It is an offence for a UK firm which is not an authorised person to contravene this prohibition (paragraph 21 of Part III of Schedule 3 to the Act). These conditions are that:

9 13 12 12 13
  1. (1)

    the UKfirm has given the appropriate UK regulator,19 in accordance with the appropriate UK regulator's19rules (see SUP 13.5.1 R)12or the directly applicable regulations made under the CRD (see SUP 13.5.1 R)11, notice of its intention to establish a branch (known as a notice of intention8) which:8

    191988
    1. (a)

      identifies the activities which it seeks to carry on through the branch; and

    2. (b)

      includes such other information as may be specified by the appropriate UK regulator19 (see SUP 13.5.1 R)or by the directly applicable regulations made under the CRD (see SUP 13.5.1 R)12;

      19
  2. (2)

    the appropriate UK regulator19 has given notice (known as a consent notice) to the Host State regulator;

    1910
  3. (2A)

    if the UK firm'sEEA right relates to providing collective portfolio management services under the UCITS Directive13, the FCA19 has provided to the Host State regulator:10

    19
    1. (a)

      confirmation that the firm has been authorised as a management company under the provisions of the UCITS Directive;10

    2. (b)

      a description of the scope of the firm's authorisation; and 10

    3. (c)

      details of any restriction on the types of EEA UCITS scheme that the firm is authorised to manage; and10

  4. (3)
    1. (a)

      if the UK firm's EEA right derives from the Insurance Mediation Directive or the MCD16 one month has elapsed beginning on the date on which the UK firm received notice that the appropriate UK regulator19 had given a consent notice8 as described in SUP 13.3.6 G (1) (see SUP 13.3.2A G);4

      198
    2. (b)

      in any other case (except for a firm passporting under AIFMD)13:4

      1. (i)

        the Host State regulator has notified the UK firm17 of the applicable provisions or, in the case of a UK firm passporting under MiFID or the UCITS Directive,10 that the branch may be established8; or4

        15151919
      2. (ii)

        two months have elapsed beginning with the date on which the appropriate UK regulator19 gave the consent notice.41

        19
SUP 13.3.2A G

4If the UK firm is passporting under the Insurance Mediation Directive and the EEA State in which the UK firm is seeking to establish a branch has not notified the European Commission of its wish to be informed of the intention of persons to establish a branch in its territory in accordance with article 6(2) of that directive, SUP 13.3.2 G (2) and SUP 13.3.2 G (3) do not apply. Accordingly, the UK firm may establish the branch to which its notice of intention8 relates as soon as the conditions referred to in SUP 13.3.2 G (1) are satisfied. The list of EEA States that have notified the European Commission of their wish to be informed in accordance with article 6(2) of the Insurance Mediation Directive is published on the FCA's19 website at www.fca.org.uk.8

SUP 13.3.2B G

4An appointed representative appointed by a firm to carry on insurance mediation activity on its behalf may establish a branch in another EEA State under the Insurance Mediation Directive. In this case, the notice of intention8 in SUP 13.3.2 G (1) should be given to the appropriate UK regulator19 by the firm on behalf of the appointed representative.5

8 19
SUP 13.3.2C G

4An exempt professional firm which is included in the record of unauthorised persons carrying on insurance mediation activity maintained by the FCA19 under article 93 of the Regulated Activities Order may establish a branch in another EEA State under the Insurance Mediation Directive (see PROF 7.2).

19
SUP 13.3.2D G

8A tied agent appointed by a MiFID investment firm to carry on investment services and activities (and ancillary services where relevant) does not have its own passporting right to establish a branch in another EEA State. However, a MiFID investment firm remains free to appoint a tied agent to do business in another EEA State and where it does so, the tied agent will benefit from its passport.

  1. (1)

    8If the UK firm'sEEA right derives from the CRD12 or10MiFID8,10 the appropriate UK regulator19 will give the Host State regulator a consent notice within three months unless it has reason to doubt the adequacy of a UK firm's resources or its administrative structure.8 The Host State regulator then has a further two months to notify the applicable provisions (if any) and prepare for the supervision, as appropriate, of the UK firm, or in the case of a MiFID investment firm, to inform the UK firm that a branch can be established.8

    812819
  2. (1A)

    If the UK firm'sEEA right derives from the UCITS Directive, the FCA19 will give the Host State regulator a consent notice within two months unless it has reason to doubt the adequacy of the UK firm's resources or its administrative structure.

    13Where the UKfirm'sEEA right derives from AIFMD, the FCA will give the Host State regulator a consent notice within two months of having received the notice of intention and immediately inform the UKfirm pursuant to SUP 13.3.6 G (1) if the FCA is satisfied that the firm complies, and continues to comply with:

    1. (a)

      the provisions implementing the AIFMD; and

    2. (b)

      any directly applicable EU regulation made under that directive.

  4. (2)

    If the UK firm'sEEA right derives from the Insurance Mediation Directive and SUP 13.3.2 G (2) applies, the appropriate UK regulator19 will give the Host State regulator a consent notice within one month of the date on which it received the UK firm'snotice of intention. In cases where SUP 13.3.2 G (2) does not apply (see SUP 13.3.2A G), the UK firm may establish a branch as soon as it satisfies the conditions referred to in SUP 13.3.2 G.178

  5. (3)

    If the UK firm'sEEA right derives from the MCD, the FCA will give the Host State regulator a consent notice within one month of the date on which it received the UK firm'snotice of intention. The Host State regulator then has a further two months to prepare for the supervision of the UK firm.16

SUP 13.3.5A G

19Where the PRA is the appropriate UK regulator, it will consult the FCA before deciding whether to give a consent notice, except where paragraph 19(7A) of Part III of Schedule 3 to the Act applies.

Unregulated activities

SUP 13.5.5 G

A notice of intention3 (other than one to establish a branch or provide services in another EEA state under the auction regulation)7 may include activities within the scope of the relevant Single Market Directive which are not regulated activities (paragraphs 19(3) and 20(2) of Part III of Schedule 3 to the Act), although in the case of a MiFID investment firm a notice of intention may only include ancillary services which are to be carried on with one or more investment services and activities (paragraphs 19(5B) and 20(2A) of Part III of Schedule 3 to the Act)3. Regulation 19 of the EEA Passport Rights Regulations states that where a UK firm is able to carry on such an unregulated activity in the EEA State in question without contravening any law of the United Kingdom (or any part of the United Kingdom) the UK firm is treated, for the purposes of the exercise of its EEA right, as being authorised to carry on that activity.1

SUP 13.6 Changes to branches

SUP 13.6.1 G

Where a UK firm is exercising an EEA right, other than under the Insurance Mediation Directive (see SUP 13.6.9A G)14 or the CRD9, and has established a branch in another EEA State, any changes to the details of the branch are governed by the EEA Passport Rights Regulations. References to regulations in this section are to the EEA Passport Rights Regulations. A UK firm which is not an authorised person should note that, under regulation 18, contravention of the prohibition imposed by regulation 11(1), 13(1) or 15(1) is an offence. It is a defence, however, for the UK firm to show that it took all reasonable precautions and exercised due diligence to avoid committing the offence.5

12 12
SUP 13.6.2 G

UK firms should note that if a branch in another EEA State ceases to provide services, this may represent a change in requisite details or, if the firm is passporting under the Solvency II Directive,12 the relevant EEA details or relevant UK details7.

7 12
SUP 13.6.3 G

UK firms should also note that changes to the details of branches may lead to changes to the applicable provisions to which the UK firm is subject. These changes should be communicated to the UK firm14 by the Host State regulator14.

The process

SUP 13.6.11 G

When the appropriate UK regulator16 receives a notice from a UK firm other than a MiFID investment firm7(see SUP 13.6.5 G (1) and SUP 13.6.7 G (1))14, a UK firm exercising an EEA right under the MCD (see (SUP 13.6.9D G)13 or an AIFM (see SUP 13.6.9C G)10it is required by regulations 11(4) and 13(4) to either refuse, or consent to the change within a period of one month7 from the day on which it received the notice.

16 10 8 7
SUP 13.6.12 G

If the appropriate UK regulator16 consents to the change, then under regulations 11(5) and 13(5) it will:

16
  1. (1)

    give a notice to the Host State regulator informing it of the details of the change; and

  2. (2)

    inform the UK firm that it has given the notice, stating the date on which it did so.

SUP 13.6.12A G

16Where the PRA is the appropriate UK regulator, it will consult the FCA before deciding whether to give consent to a change (or proposed change) and where the FCA is the appropriate UK regulator, it will consult the PRA before deciding whether to give consent in relation to a UK firm whose immediate group includes a PRA-authorised person.

SUP 13.6.15 G

If the appropriate UK regulator16 refuses to consent to a change, then under regulations 11(6) and 13(6):

16
  1. (1)

    the appropriate UK regulator16 will give notice of the refusal to the UK firm, stating its reasons and giving an indication of the UK firm's right to refer the matter to the Tribunal and the procedures on such a reference; and

7The process: MiFID investment firms

SUP 13.6.17 G

7When the appropriate UK regulator16 receives a notice from a UK MiFID investment firm (see SUP 13.6.5BG (1)), it is required by regulation 11A(3) to inform the relevant Host State regulator of the proposed change as soon as reasonably practicable. The firm in question may make the change once the period of one month beginning with the day on which it gave notice has elapsed.

16

The process: AIFMs11

SUP 13.6.18 G
  1. (1)

    11When the FCA receives a notice from an AIFM (see SUP 13.6.9C G) for a planned change and such change means the AIFM no longer complies with AIFMD, the FCA must inform the AIFM without undue delay that:

    1. (a)

      the FCA objects to the change, including reasons for its decision; and

    2. (b)

      the AIFM must not implement the change.

    In these circumstances the AIFM may refer the matter to the Tribunal.

  2. (2)

    If a planned change is implemented or an unplanned change takes place and results in the AIFM no longer complying with an implementing provision of AIFMD, the FCA must:

    1. (a)

      take steps to ensure that the AIFM complies with that provision or ceases to exercise the EEA right; and

    2. (b)

      give notice to the AIFM with reasons for taking such steps.

    In these circumstances, the AIFM may refer the matter to the Tribunal.

  3. (3)

    If a planned change is implemented or an unplanned change takes place and results in no change to the AIFM's compliance with an implementing provision, the FCA must:

    1. (a)

      give a notice to the Host State regulator informing it of the change; and

    2. (b)

      inform the firm that it has given the notice, stating the date on which it did so.

The process: MCD

SUP 13.6.19 G

13When the FCA receives a notice from a UK firm exercising an EEA right under the MCD it will, under regulation 17(B)(3), inform the relevant Host State regulator of the proposed change as soon as reasonably practicable. The UK firm in question may make the change once a period of one month has elapsed beginning with the day on which it gave notice.

SUP 13.7 Changes to cross border services

SUP 13.7.1 G

Where a UK firm12 is exercising an EEA right under the UCITS Directive, MiFID,12 the MCD11 or AIFMD8 and is providing cross border services into another EEA State, any changes to the details of the services are governed by the EEA Passport Rights Regulations. References to regulations in this section are to the EEA Passport Rights Regulations. A UK firm which is not an authorised person should note that contravention of the prohibition imposed by regulation 12(1), 12A(1)5 or 16(1) is an offence. It is a defence, however, for the UK firm to show that it took all reasonable precautions and exercised due diligence to avoid committing the offence.3
