LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Complyport a compliance and regulatory consultancy today responding to the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) update on the authorisation under the Temporary Permissions Regime (TPR), relevant to European Economic Area (EEA), has warned firms to ensure applications are “right first time”.
Jonathan Greenstein Associate Director of Complyport said:
“The PRA’s statement extending the time period for processing authorisation applications from EEA banks and insurers highlights the large number of firms seeking authorisation – a trend we have also seen with FCA applications. This is a very positive sign for the UK's financial services sector. However, it also highlights the importance of submitting comprehensive ‘right first time’ applications making it easy for the regulators to approve applications without further delay - something that Complyport has been doing for 20 years now for over 1000 successful authorisations.”
