FCA Consults upon Implementation Proposal for MiFID II (CP 16/19)

FCA Consultation: MiFID II Implementation Proposals

11th August 2016

The Financial Conduct Authority have now entered their second consultation relating to the implementation of the revised Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II).

The Consultation Paper (CP16/19), published on 29th July 2016, seeks for industry views upon the FCA’s proposed changes to the FCA Handbook in light of MiFID II due to be implemented across Europe on 3rd January 2018.

This Consultation Paper follows on from the FCA’s previous MiFID II consultation last December upon the Secondary Trading of Financial Instruments, as well as the key objectives and background to MiFID II.

MiFID II Consultation Topics

The FCA’s consultation (CP16/19) covers a a range of issues including:

It is expected that despite the two MiFID II consultations that have now been issued by the regulator, there  will still  a  range  of  issues  that the FCA will need to cover to make  the  necessary  changes  to  the FCA Handbook  to  implement  MiFID  II.  

The FCA is therefore expected to now publish  a  third  Consultation Paper  on  MiFID  II  implementation that is anticipated to include  changes  to  the regulator’s Conduct  of Business sourcebook (COBS), material on product governance and some further changes to the Perimeter Guidance Manual (PERG)

CP16/19: Consultation Closing Date

The consultation will run until the 28th October 2016, by which time comments should have been submitted to the regulator so that they may then start considering their feedback and be ready to publish their rules in a Policy Statement during the first half of next year.
