We continue to plan for a range of outcomes to the Brexit negotiations. One of these outcomes is the UK leaving the EU on 29 March 2019 without an implementation period. You can read more about how we are preparing on our Brexit webpages.

The proposals we have published today will help ensure we have a functioning regulatory framework in place. We are working to ensure as smooth a transition as possible. By consulting, our aim is to provide certainty and confidence for firms operating in the UK.

We welcome your continued engagement and encourage you to consider the impact of our proposals.

Financial services contracts regime

We have set out proposals to implement the financial services contracts regime (FSCR) so that EEA firms can fulfil their existing contractual obligations in the UK. 

The FSCR allows for the continuity of existing contracts after exit day for EEA firms which either:

Allowing contracts to continue is important for protecting UK consumers and minimising market disruption.

The FSCR does not allow EEA firms to take on new business after 29 March 2019. Similarly, EEA-based managers, depositaries and trustees of UK authorised funds cannot continue to manage or provide services to these funds after exit day under FSCR. These firms and fund managers will need to enter the temporary permissions regime.
