(2) Where a Member permits the delegation of Sponsored Access by its authorised Customer and any other persons: —
(a) the Member must have measures to ensure that the authorised Customer and any other persons delegating Sponsored Access:
(i) are persons regulated by a recognised regulatory authority in respect of any regulated activity; or
(ii) where such persons are not regulated in accordance with Rule 2.1.2A(2)(a)(i), that such persons are Members of the Exchange, and that such persons shall only be permitted to delegate Sponsored Access to their Related Corporations; and
(b) the Member must include in the legally binding agreement referred to in Rule 2.1.2(1)(d) the requirement for such Customer and any other persons delegating Sponsored Access to ensure that all persons with Sponsored Access are included in the register referred to in Rule 2.1.2A(1)(a) and subject to the requirements set out in Rule 2.1.2A(1)(c).
