MiFID II & MiFIR timetable

3 min read

Below you will find a timetable of events and publications of Level 1 and Level 2 measures in relation to the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive Review, i.e. MiFID II and MiFIR. For more on the mechanics of the different levels of the Lamfalussy Process, see our separate post on the subject here.

Please note that ESMA has informed the European Commission on 4 October 2015 of a delay in the submission of regulatory technical standards it was due to deliver (Link to ESMA statement). This has led to a discussion as to whether a delay of the timetable is necessary and in which form, so it would be prudent to to monitor the development.
