Regulatory Template, Regulatory Summary and Behaviour Template

Material changes

We have reviewed the documents and been in contact with our local counsel and can confirm that there have been no relevant significant regulatory changes in respect of cross-border activity since the last publication of this country manual.

Non-material changes

The documents have been reformatted onto the latest templates. Some content has been reworded, without introducing material changes, to provide more clarity and reflect the current regulatory framework more accurately. Some comments have been simplified.

Implications for business relations with third parties

The documents have been reformatted onto the latest template, this section now provides more answers, notably to better distinguish between the provision of documentation to the EAM for its own use and provision of documentation for its subsequent distribution to end-clients.

Regulatory Summary

This document has now a more user-friendly layout and reflects the changes contained in the RT.

BT Short Comparison

BRP has created a comparison document allowing users to quickly identify the modifications made compared to the previous version of the PB Manual (BT Short Comparison). The BT Short Comparison can be found on BRP’s platform (mybrponline) in the Search tab by entering in the Document Field “CM PB BT SHORT COMP” and “QATAR” in the Target Country Field.

The BT Short Comparison should be read as follows:

The first column contains a short description of the activity in question. The second column contains the answers of the previous version of the Country Manual (online until the day of the alert). The third column contains the new answers of the most recent version of the Country Manual. Only the modified answers are displayed (in color). If the answers in the new version are unchanged compared to the previous version, they are shaded in grey.
