UK: The EU Prospectus Regulation and the new PRR Sourcebook

The Financial Conduct Authority has published a policy statement containing near final rules the aim of which is to align the FCA Handbook with the EU Prospectus Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2017/1129): see here (pdf). The changes will see the creation of a new sourcebook - the Prospectus Regulation Rules (PRR) sourcebook - coming into force on 21 July 2019 and replacing the current PR sourcebook. The rules are 'near final' because they contain references to proposed revisions to domestic and EU legislation that have not yet been made. Further information about the Regulation can be found here.
