This page has been updated to publish draft documents that we intend to use to operationalise new RO ringfencing requirements, should we decide to implement them. These documents include the draft RO ringfencing schedule, and draft RO ringfencing guidance. We welcome any comments on these documents via email to by close on 17 March 2023. We plan to consider any representations and to publish final versions of these documents alongside our decision on our statutory consultation.
