The Prospectus Directive of 4 November 2003 and the Prospectus Regulation of 29 April 2004 permit a single European passport for a prospectus that has been approved by the competent authority of a Member State to be used for the public offering of securities in other Member States without the need to obtain approval in each state. The Prospectus Directive sets forth the general rules and requirements for the preparation, approval and distribution of prospectuses and defines the content, format and publication of the prospectus, while the Prospectus Regulation defines the minimum information that must be included in the prospectus and its related documents. This second volume contains reports of the implementation of the Prospectus Directive in those EU and EEA Member States not included in the first volume. Together, both volumes give the reader an overview of the implementation throughout the European Union and the European Economic Area.
