EC consultation on the prevention and amicable resolution of disputes between investors and public authorities within the single market – deadline extended to 30 November 2017
Following the Capital Markets Union Mid-term Review of June 2017, the Commission launched at the beginning of August an open consultation to investigate whether an EU framework might be needed in the context of preventing and resolving disputes amicably between investors and public authorities within the Single Market. Interested parties were also asked to identify areas where better clarity about EU investors’ rights is needed in order to feed into the upcoming Commission guidance. The consultation questionnaire is available here.
The consultation period has been extended until 30 November and the participation of investor representatives, legal practitioners and mediators/arbitrators is welcome.
