BREXIT: 11pm (GMT) on 31 December 2020 (‘IP completion day’) marked the end of the Brexit transition/implementation period entered into following the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. Following IP completion day, key transitional arrangements come to an end and significant changes begin to take effect across the UK’s legal regime. This document contains guidance on subjects impacted by these changes. Before continuing your research, see: Brexit and financial services: materials on the post-Brexit UK/EU regulatory regime.

BREXIT: UK is leaving EU on Exit Day (as defined in the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018). This has an impact on this Practice Note. For further guidance, see Practice Note: The impact of Brexit on the MiFID II regime.

Introduction to the MiFID II UK implementation roadmap

The recast Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (2014/65/EU) (MiFID II) and new Markets in Financial Instruments Regulation (600/2014) (MiFIR) were published in the Official Journal of the European Union (EU) on 12 June 2014 and entered into force on 2 July 2014. MiFID II and MiFIR significantly amend and expand the regulatory framework that was established by the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (2004/39/EC) (MiFID I). As amended, the majority of the new Directive and Regulation came into effect on 3 January 2018, and EU Member States had until 3 July 2017 to transpose the provisions of MiFID II into national law.
