Neelie Kroes said at the ECB-DNB Retail Payments Conference in Frankfurt that European regulation has not achieved the desired degree of harmonisation. She also said that national administrators have been, at times, "bullied" into not imposing regulation because of alleged competitive disadvantages such regulation might create for certain banks. She added, that while self-regulation, for example SEPA, has a role to play in creating an integrated market, it requires robust monitoring and evaluation. Without this it will not reach its competitive potential.

"I find the Lexology service invaluable.
In common with many in-house lawyers, I have limited access to (and a limited budget for) resources and rely on receiving know-how from friends and contacts in private practice. Lexology is great as it provides a daily email with the headlines in all the areas of law that I am interested in (which are all relevant to me, as I was able to choose which areas I was interested in at registration), with links to articles from a wide variety of sources.
I tend to scroll through the daily email when I am having my lunch, reading the headlines and descriptions of the articles, and click on any items that are of interest to me - that way, I feel like I am kept 'in the loop' with legal developments.
In addition to the daily email, I find the articles themselves very helpful - they set out the legal principle but most importantly, they 'boil it down' to the practical implications. When I am doing legal research, I also find the archive search function very helpful.
I have recommended the service to quite a few friends who have also found it very helpful."
