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.

Introduction to the MiFIR UK implementation roadmap

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.
