16 September 2016: Joint ESAs’ Consumer Protection Day

The Joint Committee of the European Supervisory Authorities (ESAs) is pleased to announce that the 4th “Joint ESAs Consumer Protection Day” will take place on 16 September 2016 in Paris. For the first time, the ESAs will livestream the event so that the content is available to everyone. The event aims to promote exchanges of views on consumer protection topics between regulators, consumer representatives and the finance industry.

Since its inception, the Consumer Protection Day has become an important milestone for stakeholders across the EU that have an interest in the topic of consumer protection. In June 2015, the third annual Joint ESAs Consumer Protection Day hosted by the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA) in Frankfurt attracted over 300 consumer representatives, academics, consultants, national supervisors, experts from EU institutions and members of the financial services industry.
Consumer and investor protection is a common statutory objective of the three ESAs – the European Banking Authority (EBA), the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) and EIOPA. The Joint ESAs Consumer Protection Day aims to gather consumers, regulators and industry participants together to discuss consumer protection-related issues in the financial services area.
