This chapter charts the passage of the Financial Services (Banking Reform) Act 2013. The Banking Reform Act was enacted in December 2013 and comprises of 8 parts and 10 schedules. The Act was intended to deliver on the government’s plan to create a more robust, better regulated and managed banking system, that supports the economy, customers and small businesses. The Banking Reform Act implemented the recommendations of the Independent Commission on Banking (on banking-sector structural reform) and the key recommendations of the Parliamentary Commission on Banking Standards (on behaviour, culture, and professional standards within the banking industry). The Act amended the FSMA, the Insolvency Act 1986, and the Banking Act 2009. It also provided the legislative platform for an enhanced accountability regime within financial services.
