The European Commission has published the results of its call for evidence on the EU regulatory framework for financial services. Amongst other things, the Commission states that it intends to: (i) monitor market developments to make sure that the regime for SME growth market issuers under MAR strikes the right balance between supporting SMEs to list and protecting investors; (ii) undertake a mapping exercise of national transposition measures to identify gold-plating provisions which create undue additional compliance costs. Currently, the Commission is assessing the national transposition of 17 directives; and (iii) review, as part of the CMU Action Plan, national provisions that create an unjustified or disproportionate burden to the cross-border movement of capital. The objective is to prepare a joint roadmap with the Member States for possible actions to remove those national barriers.
