“Quick fix” amendments to MiFID2 have now been published in the Official Journal. These amendments aim to support economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, including via relief from certain administrative requirements on firms. EU Member States are required to transpose the quick fix amendments into their national frameworks by 28 November 2021 and apply them by 28 February 2022. Alongside this, the scheduled MiFID2 review continues, with the Commission expected to publish a further legislative proposal towards the end of 2021.
