M2G 1.6 Third country firms

M2G 1.6.1G

1MiFIR and the EU regulations made under MiFID 2 apply to EU firms and EEA firms (when adopted by the EEA states). For the UK branches of non-EEA firms (third country firms), these regulations are not of general application and it is necessary to ensure, via domestic measures, that these branches do not receive more favourable treatment than their EU counterparts (see Recital 109 of the recast MiFID). A new rule, GEN 2.2.22A R, is included for this purpose.
