More about the B-word: the UK FCA puts out a consultation on STS

The UK Financial Conduct Authority has just issued a consultation relating to the format of future STS notifications in a world where the United Kingdom may no longer be part of the European Union.  Entitled a “Draft technical standards on the content and format of STS notifications under the onshored Securitisation Regulation”, the consultation is the first to deal with the technical standards to be applied in the UK in the event of a departure by the UK from the EU without some transitional arrangements.  Responses are required by August 27th, so if you had not yet found a good novel to read on the beach, you now know what you can do on holiday.
