Level 3 / Local Implementation

On 18 July 2016, the FCA issued a consultation on its plans to implement the PRIIPs Regulation, which provides some insight on its interpretation of the Regulation and RTS. The Consultation Paper can be found here. Click here for our brief summary of the implications for NURS funds and territorial scope.

In May 2017, the FCA published its policy statement (PS17/6) on amendments to the disclosure requirements in the FCA Handbook to reflect the introduction of the PRIIPs Regulation.

The text of the final rules and guidance is set out in the Packaged Retail and Insurance-based Investment Products Regulation Instrument 2017 (FCA 2017/28). The rules come into force on 01 January 2018.
