The FCA has published a policy statement on implementation of the Market Abuse Regulation (PS16/13). The policy statement summarises the responses the FCA has received to its November 2015 consultation paper on policy proposals and Handbook changes relating to the implementation of MAR. The FCA has incorporated some of the technical and drafting comments into the final rules making changes to the FCA Handbook to implement MAR. Appendix 1 to PS 16/13 contains the Market Abuse Regulation Instrument 2016 (FCA 2016/31), which was made by the FCA board on 21 April 2016 and comes into force on 3 July 2016.
