A series of changes to the EU prospectus regime became effective on July 1, 2012, as a result of Directive 2010/73/EU (the “Amending Directive”) which amended Directive 2003/71/EC (the “Prospectus Directive”). At the same time, two delegated regulations by the EU Commission—Regulation (EU) No 486/2012 and Regulation (EU) No 862/2012—became effective, amending Regulation (EC) No 809/2004 (the “Prospectus Regulation”).
Key changes as a result of the amendments to the Prospectus Directive and the Prospectus Regulation relate to:
Taken together, these changes require significant alterations to Prospectus Directive-compliant prospectuses, in particular the base prospectuses for structured note programs widely used by many financial institutions. In addition, the changes have required financial intermediaries and their compliance personnel to design revised procedures to ensure compliance with the new consent requirements in the context of retail cascades.
