No, Subscriber Managers who have been selected for this review need to complete the review within 30 days as a requirement posed in the MPR.
Subscriber Managers who have not been able to successfully outline how they comply with the MPR will be notified directly. PEXA will work with the affected Subscriber Manager to ensure appropriate actions are taken to remedy any identified gaps. In some cases, non-compliance may lead to suspension.
Contact details will be provided with the SRP questionnaire to discuss your options directly with PEXA.
All participants are required to complete all sections of the Subscriber Review Process before submission. However, you can save your progress and return to complete this questionnaire at any time.
The process for selecting recipients of the Subscriber Review Process is random and based upon criteria previously agreed with ARNECC. Recipients include, but are not limited to Financial Institutions, Legal Practitioners, and Conveyancers.

Yes, you may engage other experts within your organisation, however, the review will need to be submitted by a Subscriber Manager in your organisation.
Subscriber Managers will be required to complete an SRP questionnaire on behalf of their organisation that will include questions on eligibility criteria (as defined in the MPR); general obligations; system security and integrity. Subscriber Managers will be requested to answer these questions within 30 days, and where necessary, to attach relevant evidence.
Subscriber Managers will be contacted 30 days prior to the due date of the assessment. They can choose to engage colleagues to respond to the questions but the completed assessment must be submitted by the Subscriber Manager.
The Subscriber Review Process differs from other assessments that Subscribers may have completed, such as compliance examinations conducted by land registries. PEXA is required by ARNECC to complete this review, which focuses on Subscriber obligations as outlined in the MPR.
* Please note, other obligations exist in relation to verifying identity, holding relevant evidence for a transaction, holding a client authorisation, providing certifications (among other things). These are not summarised here. This is not an exhaustive summary of your MPR obligations.
