The following Financial Services guidance note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
The recast Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (Directive 2014/65/EU) (MiFID II) and the new Markets in Financial Instruments Regulation (Regulation (EU) 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 (Directive 2004/39/EC) (MiFID I). As amended, the majority of the new Directive and Regulation came into effect on 3 January 2018. EU Member States had until 3 July 2017 to transpose the provisions of MiFID II into national law, while MiFIR has direct effect in Member States.
This document provides an article-by-article roadmap of MiFIR, with the following information for each article:
article heading and number
level 2 measures (including regulatory technical standards (RTS), implementing technical standards (ITS), and delegated acts)
