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.

CESR launches today a consultation paper (Ref. CESR/04-104b) seeking to engage market participants, consumers and end-users of financial services regulation in a discussion to establish how regulators can fully play their part in ensuring firstly, that there is greater consistency across Europe in the process of implementation (where CESR Members contribute towards the local transposition of European financial services legislation in their Member States), and secondly, to ensure greater EU-wide convergence through the application of this legislation (that is undertaken on a day-to-day basis through the exercise of their supervisory tasks).
