63.43 KB
This paper completes the work conducted by CESR on the harmonization of conduct of business rules under the existing Article 11 of the Investment Services Directive.

The paper contains: I) core conduct of business rules which should apply to investment services between investment firms and professionals and II) core standards for "counterparty relationships".
