European Commission publishes summary of equivalence decisions for non EU countries

The European Commission has created this web page which summaries the “equivalence decisions” made with respect to the recognition of the compliance of non EU countries. Equivalence recognition of a non EU country allows compliance  in that country to sometimes be recognised as compliance with certain parts of EU financial legislation, such as EMIR, MAR and others. The main summary table here shows all such decisions, with the various  other documents providing explanations and other supporting information.
