MIFID investment firms now need to use a new form to notify FCA of management body changes for Non-SMF Directors. This form is required to submit information when appointing Non-SMF Directors to, or withdrawing them from, the firm’s management body.
The form is called ‘Notification Procedures for Changes to the Management Body for Non-SMF Directors’ and is available to download in SUP 15 Annex 14R of the FCA Handbook.
If a firm’s management body changes, the form needs to be downloaded, completed and emailed to NonSMFNotification@fca.org.uk until it is loaded on to Connect. From Q1 2020, firms will be able to submit the form via Connect, the FCA’s online platform.
