MEFOP – Working Table on Community Themes

On November 13, on the Google Meet platform, it was possible to attend a video conference of the MEFOP Working Table, during which various relevant subject matters relevant to EU legislation were discussed. These included the revision of the SFDR (Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation), updates regarding the DORA (Digital Operational Resilience Act), and a proposal for a Regulation on access to financial data (FIDA).

MEFOP – established in 1999 by the Ministry of Economy and Finance as the Society for the Development of the Pension Fund Market – invited operators of the Italian supplementary pension to properly reflect on  the scope of the SFDR Regulation in order to affirm a sustainable economic model aligned with ESG policies.

In the end of the working day, a document was put forward for consultation. It contains both questions requiring responses on a scale from 1 (strongly disagree) to 5 (strongly agree) and open-ended questions.

Regarding the FIDA Regulation, the outcome of the discussions led to a proposal aimed at enabling access, sharing, and utilization of client data within the scope of financial services, including financial information service providers.
