EU Commission Proposal for a Regulation on European Crowdfundingby Company Announcement May 4, 2018
The proposal for a regulation on crowdfunding, adopted by the European Commission in March 2018, will enable crowdfunding platforms to easily provide their services across the EU.
Platforms will have to comply with only one set of rules, both when operating in their home market and in other EU countries.
For investors, the proposal will provide legal certainty as regards the applicable protection rules.
To complement the new regulation on crowdfunding, the Commission has also adopted a proposal for a directive amending Directive 2014/65/EU on markets in financial instruments (MiFID 2).
Regulations are binding legal acts that are directly applicable in all EU countries. Therefore, EU countries do not need to take further steps to incorporate them into their national legislation. Proposals are made by the Commission and must be adopted by the legislator via one of the legislative procedures.
