The Members marked with an * are EU/EEA Parties. They have informed the other Parties that an EU/EEA Party only enters into a working arrangement for information exchange and shares certain information with non-EU/EEA regulators after – and as long as – the European Commission (EC) declares that regulator adequate for the purposes of Article 47 of Directive 2006/43/EC (see website EC). Since that adequacy assessment is done by the EC before the MMOU is effective between an EU/EEA Party and a non-EU/EEA Party, the requirement is covered by the EU/EEA Parties signing with a non-application clause whereby the MMOU as a whole would not be effective as between an EU/EEA Party and any non-EU/EEA Party that had not been declared adequate by the EC. This means that the MMOU does not apply in relation to ‘non-adequate third country’ Parties regarding information under the scope of Article 47 of the Directive 2006/43/EC. See for more information Annex B – Explanatory Note of the MMOU.
