On March 7, the European Commission (EC) published a document containing a list of planned EC initiatives (List). The List sets out the scope, objectives and expected adoption dates of legislative and non-legislative initiatives, and forms part of the 2016 work program of the EC.

Agenda items noted on the List include:

  • a proposal for a regulation on the recovery and resolution of central counterparties;
  • a “possible” legislative proposal to amend the Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR) to incorporate changes to the Basel framework and findings from other reviews required under the CRR; and
  • various delegated and implementing acts in relation to the amended Markets in Financial Instruments Directive and Markets in Financial Instruments Regulation.

The work program can be found here.
