ESMA launched its Interactive Single Rulebook, which is a new service for market participants and other interested stakeholders across EU. The Interactive Single Rulebook is an online tool that aims to provide a comprehensive overview of, and easy access to, all level 2 and level 3 measures adopted in relation to a given level 1 text. The tool is launched with the Level 1 text of the Undertakings for the Collective Investment in Transferable Securities (UCITS) Directive and links to all relevant Level 2 and Level 3 measures available elsewhere on the ESMA website.
The Interactive Single Rulebook aims to facilitate consistent application of the EU single rulebook in the securities markets. The new online tool provides, for Directives or Regulations under ESMA remit, a comprehensive overview of all implementing or delegated acts, guidelines, opinions, and questions and answers (Q&As). ESMA aims to provide an interactive version for each key Level 1 text under its remit incrementally, with the next texts being the Credit Rating Agencies Regulation and the Market in Financial Instruments Directive and Regulation (MiFID II and MiFIR).
