FI is making minor amendments to Finansinspektionen's regulations (FFFS 2007:17) governing operations on trading venues. As a result of the amendment, the provisions prescribing when a notification of the acquisition and transfer of treasury shares must be made will be removed. The provisions regarding the content of the notification will also be removed.
The reason for the amendment is that the regulations must be adapted to both the amendments to the law decided by the Riksdag and the EU Market Abuse Regulation. Detailed rules will be provided in technical standards for supervision.
The regulatory amendments enter into force on 3 July 2016. Amendment 2016:19
