Event Details


Regulation No 596/2014 on market abuse (MAR), repealing Directive 2003/6/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council and Commission Directives 2003/124/EC, 2003/125/EC and 2004/72/EC and Directive 2014/57/EU on criminal sanctions for market abuse (CS MAD) were published in the Official Journal of the European Union on 12 June 2014 and were applied as from 3 July 2016.


MAD is intended to guarantee the integrity of European financial markets and increase investor confidence. Any unlawful behaviour in the financial markets is prohibited. The concept of market abuse typically consists of insider dealing, unlawful disclosure of inside information, and market manipulation.


MAR aims at enhancing market integrity and investor protection.


To this end MAR updates and strengthened the existing MAD framework by extending its scope to new markets and trading strategies and by introducing new requirements.
