04/03/2004 04-060 Press release- CESR starts work on Guidelines for the Consistent Implmentation of the Proposed Commission's Regulation on Prospectus. Press Release PDF
90.91 KB
CESR announces today the launch of work to prepare guidance on disclosure requirements established under the proposed Prospectus Regulation. The Prospectus Directive and accompanying Regulation establishes a harmonised format for Prospectus in Europe and enables companies to use this Prospectus to list on all European markets without having to re-apply for approval from the local regulator and by so doing help companies avoid the inherent delays and costs that this may involve. As a result of this new legislation, consumers can also be assured of more consistent and standardised information which will enable them to compare more effectively the various share offers available from a wider number of European listed companies. This is likely to lead to a greater range of products available to consumers and will encourage European companies to list and offer on a number of exchanges or markets due to the strengthening and simplification of the regulatory regime.
