United Kingdom: PRA consults on outsourcing and third party risk management


The Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) is inviting comments on its proposals to modernize the regulatory framework on outsourcing and third-party risk management.

The proposals are outlined in the draft Supervisory Statement on Outsourcing and third-party risk management.  The objectives include complementing the policy proposals on operational resilience in CP29/19 ‘Operational resilience: impact tolerances for important business services.’

They are also aimed at: i) facilitating greater resilience and adoption of the cloud and other new technologies; and ii) implementing the European Banking Authority’s ‘Guidelines on Outsourcing Arrangements.’ 

The proposals impact all UK banks, building societies and PRA-designated investment firms, insurance and reinsurance firms, branches of overseas banks and insurers.  Stakeholders are required to provide comments by April 3, 2020.
