The European Supervisory Authorities (ESAs) consultation concerning amendments to the PRIIPs KID


The European Supervisory Authorities (ESAs) have issued a Consultation Paper on amendments to existing rules underpinning the Key Information Document (KID) for Packaged Retail and Insurance-based Investment Products (PRIIPs).

The aims of the review are to:

  • Address issues that have been identified by stakeholders and supervisors since the implementation of the KID in 2018;
  • Make specific changes to allow the rules to be applied to investment funds that are expected to have to prepare a KID from 1 January 2022 onwards.

The Consultation Paper and template for comments can be accessed via the ESMA webpage.

The deadline for submission of feedback is 13 January 2020.
