8.1 These Regulations are made in accordance with and take effect under the QFC Law.

8.2 Except where the contrary is expressly stated, these Regulations do not affect any other QFC regulations made under the QFC Law which apply to a Special Company.
8.3 These Regulations do not permit or authorise a Special Company to carry on any Regulated Activity in or from the QFC, other than Special Purpose Company Activity or Holding Company Activity, as the case may be, without prior authorisation of the Regulatory Authority.
8.4 The provisions of these Regulations do not exempt a Special Company from any requirements resulting from the FSR and any of the Regulatory Authority's rules to which a Special Company is subject. If there is any conflict between these Regulations and the FSR or any Regulatory Authority rules, the FSR or rules will take precedence.
8.5 Subject to Article 8.1, if there is any conflict between these Regulations and the Companies Regulations, these Regulations will take precedence.
