certification employee

    178(as described in more detail in section 63E(1) of the Act (Certification of employees by relevant authorised person)) an employee (as defined) of a relevant authorised person who performs a significant-harm function under an arrangement entered into by the relevant authorised person in relation to the carrying on by the relevant authorised person of a regulated activity, even though the obligation of the relevant authorised person to issue a certificate under section 63F of the Act has not yet come into force.

    A person is not a certification employee of a firm if the firm would not have to issue a certificate to them under section 63E(7) of the Act (fitness is the responsibility of another authority under the Single Market Directives or the auction regulation).
