EFAMA calls for urgent PRIIPS review and extension of the UCITS exemption

10 August, 2020

The European Fund and Asset Management Association (EFAMA) has written to the European Commission on the subject of the PRIIPS draft Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS), calling for an immediate extension of the UCITS exemption, as well as an urgent Level 1 review of the regulation.

Tanguy van de Werve, EFAMA Director General, said: "Following a recent communication from the ESAs' to the European Commission on the fact that they were unable to agree on a revised PRIIPs draft RTS, the entire PRIIPs regime is in limbo."
