Revisions to regulatory laws


Revisions to the five principal laws dealing with the regulation of financial services in the Bailiwick have been ratified by the States.

The passing of the commencement ordinances means that the following regulatory laws will come into effect on 1 November 2021:

 The Protection of Investors (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law, 2020;

 The Banking Supervision (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law, 2020;

 The Regulation of Fiduciaries, Administration Businesses and Company Directors, etc (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law, 2020

It will also mean that the amendments to the Insurance Business (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law, 2002, and the Insurance Managers and Insurance Intermediaries (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law, 2002 will come into effect on the same date.

In order to implement effectively the new regulatory laws, the Commission has drafted and consulted on revised rules, codes and guidance to accompany the new laws.

Most of the changes are minor in nature and do not set out any material policy changes from the previous rules and guidance.

The Commission is currently considering the feedback received as part of the consultation process and will publish the revised rules and guidance on Wednesday 6 October.
