The modification by consent to rule SUP10.3.13R is available to all solo regulated firms. It aims to provide flexibility to firms managing their governance arrangements during the coronavirus pandemic.

It also allows firms to allocate an absent Senior Manager’s prescribed responsibilities to the individual covering the role (a modification to SYSC 24.1.2).

Firms can use the modification by consent if, for example, a Senior Manager is absent because of coronavirus, or recruitment to replace a Senior Manager is delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Firms can apply for the modification by consent as a precautionary measure, in advance of actually needing it.

The modification by consent will take effect from the date the firm applies for it, and will end on 30 April 2021.

For further information, to apply to take advantage of this modification by consent, and for a list of firms that have applied visit https://www.fca.org.uk/firms/waivers-modifications/consent
