TERMS & CONDITIONS How long will it take?  An Authorisation application can take anything from a month or two, to one year if complications arise.  There are ways and means to maximise speed of progress - the exact method will depend on the nature and aspects of each case.  A Variation of Permission can be done as quickly as one day (if the need for urgency has been expressed) - or, if complex, can take several months.  As mentioned before - a Variation 'upward' can often be vetted as closely as full Authorisations case.  Variations downward are often granted the most rapidly.  Passporting (under the Insurance Mediation Directive) can be effected within days or weeks, depending on the countries being passported into.  Cancellations are normally done within an average of one to three months. 01604 76 22 33 AT NO POINT ARE OUTCOMES GUARANTEED, AS ALL DECISIONS ARE AT THE DISCRETION OF THE FCA REGULATORY PERMISSIONS LIMITED - Companies House No.8194096, Registered in England & Wales
