In March 2019, the European Parliament and the Member States reached a political agreement to reform the current system of financial supervision with a view of strengthening the macro- and micro-prudential supervision at the EU level. This online course explains the legal system for financial services regulation and supervision before and after the reform and it clarifies the distribution of competences between the national and the EU level and the implementation of laws at both levels. The participants will learn about the respective roles and powers of various actors involved in the decision-making in financial services, with a particular emphasis on the tasks of the EU supervisory authorities (ESAs). On the basis of practical examples, the participants will have the opportunity to discuss the concrete actions taken by the ESAs, their first achievements as well as clear lessons for improvement.

Who will most benefit?

EU regulatory affairs professionals, officials in the national regulatory and supervisory authorities; professionals from financial institutions who wish to obtain solid understanding of fundamental legal concepts, principles and procedures in EU financial services; translators who need to acquaint themselves with the legal terminology as well as other professionals wishing to systematise their knowledge of financial markets regulation.

Methodology of the online course

The online course will be delivered by means of live streaming during two consecutive days via ZOOM.

The online course sessions will be conducted by experts providing a presentation on key topics. They will be followed by Q&A periods allowing for the exchange of ideas and discussion periods where participants will have the possibility to share professional experiences.
