Introduction

Over the past two years, the CNMV has been working, in coordination with the Ministry of Economy and Business Affairs and other European bodies, in view of the possibility of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union (Brexit) even if no agreement is reached, with the aim of preserving financial stability and protecting investors, and also seeking to always bear in mind the need to promote the competitiveness of the Spanish market.  

This section contains some information that may be useful for market participants and investors, including a list of documents of interest on the potential impact and consequences of Brexit and some interpretative criteria, in the form of Q&As, on provisions related to the securities market and the investment services contained in the recent Spanish Royal Decree-Law 5/2019, of 1 March, adopting contingency measures in the event of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland from the European Union without the agreement provided for in Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union having been reached.

Other Q&As may be added to this section if deemed appropriate.

Likewise, market participants may send any additional queries related to the published interpretive criteria to the following email address made available by the CNMV for these purposes (welcome@cnmv.es).
