FCA publishes a policy statement on the implementation of the Market Abuse Regulation

28th April 2016 134 - Regulatory Updates

The FCA has published a policy statement on the Implementation of the Market Abuse Regulation (MAR). This is in response to issues arising from the consultation paper on the policy propsals and handbook changes in relation to the implementation of MAR.

The consultation invited comments on two aspects:

  • Alternative options for implementing two specific EU MAR requirements and how they apply in the UK
  • The step-change in the legal status of the European market abuse regime from a Directive to a Regulation and the resulting changes to the FCA handbook

The policy statement summarises feedback received by the FCA and incorporates this into changes in the FCA handbook.
