FCA-prescribed senior management responsibilities

SYSC 25.6.4G

1SYSC 25.2.3R (Specific requirements) requires a management responsibilities map to cover the allocation of FCA-prescribed senior management responsibilities. This is not relevant to an EEA SMCR firm as FCA-prescribed senior management responsibilities do not apply to it.

  1. (3)

    An EEA SMCR firm may exclude from its management responsibilities map any other information that has been supplied by the firm to the FCA or the PRA (including through the firm’s Home State competent authority)3 if:

    1. (a)

      that information was supplied to the FCA or the PRA in carrying out their functions under the regulatory system in relation to firms;3 and

    2. (b)

      the Single Market Directives or any other EU legislation the Single Market Directives or any other EU legislation provides provided as at IP completion day for the supply of that kind of information to a Host State competent authority3.

1The FCA expects that an EEA SMCR firm that excludes information from its management responsibilities map under SYSC 25.6.5R will identify in its management responsibilities map the documents supplied to the FCA or the PRA where the omitted information can be found.

SYSC 25.6.9G

1In practice an EEA SMCR firm may find it easier to prepare its management responsibilities map without omitting any information under SYSC 25.6.5R so that all the information referred to in SYSC 25.2 (Management responsibilities maps: Main rules) can be found in a single integrated document.

SYSC 25.6.10G

1SYSC 25.4 (Guidance about what should be in a management responsibilities map) does not take into account the right of a firm to omit information under SYSC 25.6.5R. It assumes that the firm will prepare a single document under SYSC 25.6.9G. However SYSC 25.4 is not intended to take away the right to omit information under SYSC 25.6.5R.
