FI is amending the regulations on governance and control of financial undertakings. According to the amendment, central securities depositories are exempted from the scope of Finansinspektionen's general guidelines (FFFS 2005:1) regarding governance and control of financial undertakings. Matters regarding internal governance and control of central securities depositories are regulated instead directly by Regulation (EU) No. 909/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 July 2014 on improving securities settlement in the European Union and on central securities depositories (CSDR).
The amendments enter into force on 1 March 2016 with some transition regulations.
