From 9 December 2019, MIFID Investment Firms and Optional Exempt Firms will need to use a new form to submit information to the Financial Conduct Authority, when appointing Non-SMF Directors to, or withdrawing them from, their Management Body.
If a Firm’s Management Body changes, the Firm will need to complete the form ‘Notification Procedures for changes to the Management Body for non-SMF Directors’ which can be found under FCA Handbook Section – SUP 15 Annex 14R after 9 December 2019.
The form should be emailed to the FCA via NonSMFNotification@fca.org.uk .
From Q1 2020, Firms will be able to submit the form via Connect, the FCA’s online platform.
