Weekly meeting of the Barroso Commission
End production: 25/07/2012 First transmission: 25/07/2012
On 25 July 2012, the College of the EC gathered for its weekly meeting, in Brussels. During the meeting, the Members of the EC adopted a proposal for a Regulation on insider dealing and market manipulation. The proposal aims to update and strengthen the existing framework to ensure market integrity and investor protection provided by the Market Abuse Directive (2003/6/EC).
The new framework will ensure regulation keeps pace with market developments, will strengthen the fight against market abuse across commodity and related derivative markets, reinforce the investigative and sanctioning powers of regulators and reduce administrative burdens on small and medium-sized issuers.
Only the original language version is authentic and it prevails in the event of its differing from the translated versions.
