The EU Council published the final compromise text of the proposed Regulation on improving securities settlement and central securities depositaries (CSDs) (CSD Regulation) and invited COREPER to:

  • Approve the final compromise text of the CSD Regulation.
  • Confirm that the Presidency of the EU Council can indicate to the European Parliament that, should the Parliament adopt its position at first reading (subject if necessary to revision of the text by legal linguists), the EU Council would approve the Parliament’s position.

The EU Council then confirmed that COREPER has approved the text on behalf of the EU Council.
