Regulation (EU) 2017/2402, which lays down a general framework for securitisation and creates a specific framework for simple, transparent and standardised securitisation ("Regulation"), came into force on 18 January 2018 and will apply to European credit institutions, insurance companies and pension funds as well as alternative investment fund managers from 1 January 2019 onwards. The Regulation tasks the three European supervisory authorities with developing regulatory technical standards and implementation technical standards for a number of key areas addressed in the Regulation.
