On 8 April 2010 the Office of Public Sector Information published The Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Liability of Issuers) Regulations 2010 (SI 2010/1192) together with an explanatory memorandum. The Regulations extend the statutory regime on issuer liability in light of the Davis Review on Issuer Liability conducted in 2008 and are in substantially the same form as the draft regulations published by HM Treasury on 9 March 2010 as part of its response to a consultation on extending the statutory regime for issuer liability [see Essential corporate news - week ending 12 March 2010].

The Regulations were made on 7 April 2010 and come into force on 1 October 2010.
