Position of the European Parliament adopted at first reading on 11 February 2021 with a view to the adoption of Regulation (EU) 2021/… of the European Parliament and of the Council amending Regulation (EU) 2017/1129 as regards the EU Recovery prospectus and targeted adjustments for financial intermediaries and Directive 2004/109/EC as regards the use of the single electronic reporting format for annual financial reports, to support the recovery from the COVID-19 crisis

ANNEX TO THE LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION

Commission statement

The Commission takes note of the fact that the political agreement on the Commission proposal to amend the Prospectus Regulation in order to introduce an EU Recovery prospectus includes an amendment to the Transparency Directive postponing the requirement to prepare financial reports using the European Single Electronic Format (ESEF). That postponement was not included in the initial proposal from the Commission. In the Commission’s view, the postponement of ESEF is not in line with the Union’s better regulation principles and the Commission’s right of initiative. It should not, therefore, constitute a precedent. As the postponement of ESEF is not a substantive change of policy and reflects the difficult circumstances that companies face due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Commission will not stand in the way of its adoption.
