Revocation of Bilateral Arrangements Byelaw

As part of the annual capacity markets consultation, Lloyd’s consulted on a proposal to revoke the Bilateral Arrangements Byelaw and Bilateral Arrangements Rules so that bilateral arrangements are no longer permitted with effect from the 2021 auction season.  This was referred to in two Market Bulletins, Ref: Y5346 and Ref: Y5352. 

Lloyd’s notified the FCA and PRA of its proposal and subsequently received their non-objection.  Lloyd’s proceeded to submit the proposal to revoke the Bilateral Arrangements Byelaw to the Lloyd’s Council for its consideration and on 13 October the Lloyd’s Council approved the proposal. 

The Bilateral Arrangements Byelaw, the Bilateral Arrangements Rules and all related documents have now been revoked so that bilateral arrangements will no longer be permitted from 13 October 2021.
