2. PIB Rule 6.4.1 is intended to complement GEN Rule 5.3.17 and requires Authorised FirmsG to establish and maintain reporting mechanisms specifically addressing the Operational RiskG matters.
3. The frequency of internal reporting of Operational RisksG required by PIB Rule 6.4.1(b) should reflect the risks involved and the pace and nature of changes in the Authorised Firm'sG operating environment.

a. the results of monitoring activities;
