(b) the Authorised FirmG does not maintain effective or indirect control over the underlying ExposuresG ;

(e) the SecuritiesG are issued pursuant to the securitisation by an SPE and the holders of the beneficial interests in that entity have the right to pledge or exchange them without restriction;

(g) the documentation of the securitisation does not contain any clauses that:
(i) require the Authorised FirmG systematically to alter the underlying ExposuresG such that the pool's weighted average credit quality is improved unless this is achieved by selling ExposuresG to independent and unaffiliated third parties which are not ConnectedG to the Authorised FirmG or Related PersonsG of the Authorised FirmG in accordance with PIB Rule 4.4.6 at market prices;
(ii) allow for increases in a retained First Loss PositionG or Credit EnhancementG provided by the Authorised FirmG after the securitisation's inception;

(iv) other than Clean-Up CallsG , oblige the Authorised FirmG to repurchase any of the underlying ExposuresG , at any time, except where that obligation arises from the exercise of a representation or warranty given by the Authorised FirmG .

(h) the transfer of the underlying ExposuresG or the transfer of risk through sub-participation does not contravene the terms and conditions of any underlying agreement in respect of the underlying ExposuresG and where applicable, all the necessary consents for the transfer or sub-participation have been obtained;
(i) the documentation of the securitisation specifies that, if cash flows relating to the underlying ExposuresG are rescheduled or renegotiated, the SPE to which the ExposuresG have been transferred and not the Authorised FirmG , would be subject to the rescheduled or renegotiated terms;
(j) the Authorised FirmG receives a fixed amount of consideration for the underlying ExposuresG ;
