On 3 July 2016, the new Market Abuse Regulation (MAR) (Regulation (EU) No 596/2014) starts applying in all EU Member States, replacing the Market Abuse Directive.
The regulation has effect directly on each Member State without having to be transposed into national law and is applicable for the first time to all companies trading on Multilateral Trading Facilities, as well as those on Regulated Markets.
This course examines requirements of the new MAR, its technical standards and its guidelines and the changes these will bring.
