Shareholders Rights Directive Regulatory memo
The Shareholders’ Rights Directive (SRD) entered into force in 2007. The original directive and its proposed revision (SRD II) form part of the European Commission’s (EC) Corporate Governance Action Plan 2012. The Permanent Representatives Committee (COREPER) agreed the revised SRD on 13 December 2016.
The Shareholders’ Rights Directive should be read in combination with the market standards for general meetings.
