The PRA Rulebook: Part 2 - PS7/15

02 April 2015


This policy statement (PS) publishes final rules, supervisory statements and a statement of policy following on from CP25/14 The PRA Rulebook: Part 2. It is relevant to all PRA-regulated firms. It is the second in a series of publications over two years that will redraft the Handbook inherited from the Financial Services Authority to create the PRA Rulebook.
The PRA intends to launch the Rulebook website online this summer. The Rulebook website will replace the existing Handbook site currently shared with the Financial Conduct Authority. The redesigned site will reshape the PRA’s policy material by improving the online presentation of the PRA’s rules, including style, structure and functionality.
