EBA Outsourcing Guidelines: getting your contract remediation project over the line

Linkedin

Despite Brexit, the FCA confirmed back in 2021 that the European Banking Authority Guidelines on outsourcing arrangements will continue to apply to financial services institutions in the UK (with a slight reprieve extending the compliance deadline for legacy agreements); and in-scope institutions have only until 31 March 2022 - less than 6 weeks - to bring certain legacy outsourcing agreements into compliance. The PRA also incorporated the requirements of the EBA Guidelines, with several variations, into Supervisory Statement SS2/21, which comes into effect on 31 March 2022. Therefore, a similar, but not identical, regime applies to PRA regulated insurance/reinsurance firms and branches of overseas banks and insurers.
