Notification of the proposed acquisition of a ‘Qualifying Holding’ in a UK Central Counterparty (CCP)

(EMIR1 Articles 31 and 32)
Purpose of this form

This form should be completed by a director of a corporate entity2 that wishes to acquire or increase its qualifying holding, directly or indirectly, in a UK Central Counterparty (CCP) which would result in the entity’s proportion of the voting rights or capital held reaching or exceeding 10%, 20%, 30% or 50% or so that the CCP would become its subsidiary. Unless otherwise stated, “controller” means the person or persons acting in concert who have taken a decision to acquire, directly or indirectly, a qualifying holding, or to increase their existing qualify holding by entering a higher qualifying holding band. “Change in control” should be read accordingly.

Please refer to Article 2 of Regulation No 648/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 4 July 2012 on OTC derivatives, central counterparties and trade repositories (‘EMIR’) for the definition of “control”, “subsidiary” and “qualifying holding”.

Important information you should read before completing this form

To comply with the Data Protection Act 1998, any personal information provided to the Bank of England (‘the Bank’) will be used to discharge the Bank’s functions under EMIR, FSMA, the Bank of England Act 1998 and other relevant legislation; it may be disclosed to third parties for those purposes.

It is important that you disclose all relevant information and that it is accurate and complete. If you do not, you may be committing a criminal offence, it may increase time taken to assess your notification and may impact on your suitability as a controller.

If you leave a question blank, do not sign the declaration or do not attach the required supporting information and do not tell us why, the Bank will have to treat the notification as incomplete, which will result in delays.
