Pursuant to the implementation of the Transparency Directive in the FMSA on 1 January 2009, Euronext Amsterdam has removed a number of publication requirements from its Rulebook II18.

Following this amendment, all information that issuing institutions are required to disclose to the pubic under the provisions of the Euronext's rules19, as well as the listing agreement concluded with the issuer, must be published in the manner prescribed by the FMSA (i.e. on the issuer’s website and via a press release). The issuer must also provide Euronext Amsterdam with a digital version of this information, as well as any other information required under the terms of the legal provisions.

The obligation to advertise in the Dutch Daily Official List (Officiële Prijscourant) and a nationally distributed Dutch newspaper will no longer apply after 1 July 2009. It remains possible to advertise in the new digital version of the Dutch Daily Official List on a voluntary basis for the time being, for a reduced fee.
