    ESAs Highlight Relevance of Legislative Changes for the KID for PRIIPs

    October 01, 2018

    ESAs, in a letter to EC, expressed their concerns about the possibility of duplicating information requirements for investment funds from January 01, 2020 and the importance of legislative changes to avoid such a situation. To support such changes and to address the key issues that have arisen from the practical application of the Key Information Document (KID) for Packaged Retail and Insurance-based Investment Products (PRIIPs), ESAs intend to propose targeted amendments to the PRIIPs Delegated Regulation.

    Taking into account the time needed for the co-legislators to scrutinize any amendments to the Delegated Regulation, ESAs intend to submit proposals to EC in the first quarter of 2019. As part of this process, ESAs intend to launch a short public consultation during the fourth quarter of this year.  The letter responds to two letters received from EC in July and August stating a deferral of the review of the PRIIPs Regulation and requesting guidance from ESAs regarding the information to be disclosed for investment funds.

    The KID for PRIIPs is a mandatory, three-page A4 information document to be provided to consumers before they purchase a PRIIP. PRIIPs include funds, structured products, unit-linked and with-profits life insurance contracts, and structured deposits. The PRIIPs Regulation defines the main rules and principles for KIDs. It is supplemented by a Delegated Regulation specifying the presentation and contents of the KID, which is based on regulatory technical standards that the ESAs were mandated to develop.
