On 9 December 2014, the Regulation on key information documents (KIDs) for packaged retail and insurance-based investment products (PRIIPs) was published in the Official Journal of the EU (OJ).

A corrigendum was published correcting a date. The Regulation comes into force 20 days after publication in the OJ (so 29 December 2014). It applies in member states from 31 December 2016.

UCITS will not be obliged to move to producing a PRIIPs KID (which is based on the UCITS KIID) until 2019 at the earliest. See here link to November Front Page for more detail on the Discussion Paper on Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) for PRIIPs KID, which has a closing date for submissions of 17 February 2015.
