Under section 109 of the Act, a scheme report must accompany an application to the court to approve an insurance business transfer scheme. This report must be made in a form approved by the appropriate regulator.

The scheme report will be an important factor in the view each of the regulators7 forms on a scheme. Considerable reliance will be placed7 on the opinions of the independent expert and the reasons for them. However each regulator7 will form its own view taking into account other relevant7 information and having regard to its statutory objectives.777
