MiFID & MiFIR / Date

EESC opinion: MiFID & MiFIR / Date


Key points


  • accepts the Commission's proposals;
  • calls, however, for every effort to be made to avoid postponing the implementation of MiFID II any further and to ensure that the investor protection rules are not compromised in practice during the postponement period; maintains that, until the new rules are implemented, the current rules under MiFID I must, where necessary, also continue to apply in full;
  • takes the view that the objectives and implementation of the new texts must not be jeopardised in any way by the proposed postponement.
