        1. (in relation to a UK ILAS BIPRU firm (a group liquidity reporting firm) and any reporting period under SUP 16 (Reporting requirements)) the firm and each person identified in accordance with the following:
          1. (a) (in a case in which the firm is the only UK ILAS BIPRU firm in its group) that person meets any of the following conditions for any part of that period:
            1. (i) that person provides material support to the firm against liquidity risk; or
            1. (ii) that person is committed to provide such support or would be committed to do so if that person were able to provide it; or
            1. (iii) the firm has reasonable grounds to believe that that person would supply such support if asked or would do so if it were able to provide it; or
            1. (iv) the firm provides material support to that person against liquidity risk; or
            1. (v) the firm is committed to provide such support to that person or would be committed to do so if the firm were able to provide it; or

            1. (i) each of those other UK ILAS BIPRU firms; and
            1. (ii) each person identified by applying the tests in (a) separately to the firm and to each of those other UK ILAS BIPRU firms, so that applying (b) to the firm and to each of those UK ILAS BIPRU firms results in their having the same defined liquidity group;
            1. (iii) no DLG by default exists where the group consists only of UK ILAS BIPRU firms.
        1. The following provisions also apply for the purpose of this definition.
          1. (c) A person is not a member of a firm's DLG by default unless it also satisfies one of the following conditions:
            1. (i) it is a member of the firm's group; or
            1. (ii) it is a securitisation special purpose entity or a special purpose vehicle; or
            1. (iii) it is an undertaking whose main purpose is to raise funds for the firm or for a group to which that firm belongs.
          1. (ca) In the case of a group liquidity reporting firm that is within paragraph (a) of the definition of UK lead regulated firm (it is not part of a group that is subject to consolidated supervision by the FCA or the PRA or any other regulatory body), paragraph (c)(i) of the definition of DLG by default is amended so that it only includes a member of the firm's group that falls into one of the following categories:
            1. (i) it is a credit institution; or
            1. (ii) it is an investment firm or third country investment firm authorised to deal on own account.
            For these purposes:
            1. (iii) credit institution has the meaning used in SUP 16 (Reporting requirements), namely either of the following:
            1. (A) a credit institution authorised under the CRD or
            1. (B) an institution which would satisfy the requirements for authorisation as a credit institution under the CRD if it had its registered office (or if it does not have a registered office, its head office) in an EEA State; and
            1. (iv) a person is authorised to deal on own account if:
            1. (A) it is a firm and its permission includes that activity; or
            1. (B) it is an EEA firm and it is authorised by its Home State regulator to do that activity; or
            1. (C) (if the carrying on of that activity is prohibited in a state or territory without an authorisation in that state or territory) that person has such an authorisation.
          1. (d) Group has the meaning in paragraph (1) of the definition in the Glossary (the definition in section 421 of the Act).
          1. (e) The conditions in (a) are satisfied even if the firm or person in question provides or is committed or expected to provide support for only part of the period. (f) In deciding for the purpose
          1. (f) In deciding for the purpose of (a) or (b) whether the firm is the only UK ILAS BIPRU firm in its group and identifying which are the other UK ILAS BIPRU firms in its group, any group member that is a member of the group through no more than a participation is ignored.
          1. (g) A firm has a DLG by default for a period even if it only has one during part of that period.
          1. (h) Liquidity support may be supplied by or to the firm directly or indirectly.
          1. (i) Support is material if it is material either by reference to the person giving it or by reference to the person receiving it.
