The EU Council has invited COREPER to agree to the European Commission’s legislative proposals to amend the MiFID II Directive and MiFIR with a view to extending by one year their date of application and certain other dates. The Commission submitted its proposals to the Council on 10 February 2016. The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) and the European Central Bank (ECB) have been asked to provide their opinion on the legislative package but have not yet delivered the opinions. The European Parliament's Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs (ECON) voted to adopt draft reports on the legislative proposals on 7 April 2016.
