FI is amending the regulations governing activities on marketplaces. The amendments primarily entail that central securities depositories are no longer included in the scope of the regulations. Central securities depositories are instead governed 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), which is applied directly in Sweden. Given the harmonisation of the settlement cycle to T+2 through CSDR, the provision about the short holding period has also been amended.
The amendments enter into force on 1 March 2016 with some transition regulations.
