At the meeting of the European Parliament’s Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee (ECON) on 19 November 2018, a European Commission spokesperson said that they are prepared to accept the proposed time extension on UCITS KIID.

UCITS exemption from the PRIIPs Regulation is currently available until 31 December 2019, but the European Commission statement means that it could be extended to 31 December 2021.

On 8 November 2018, the European Supervisory Authorities (ESAs) issued a joint consultation paper concerning amendments to the Key Information Document (KID) for Packaged Retail and Insurance-based Investment Products (PRIIPs). 

The proposed amendments are related to:

  • Performance scenarios 
  • Other specific amendments 
  • Amendments arising from the possible end of the exemption in Article 32 of the PRIIPs Regulation

Stakeholders have an opportunity to comment on the proposed amendments to the PRIIPs Delegated Regulation. Comments can be sent to ESAs by 6 December 2018.
