The European Union facing the global arena: standard - setting bodies and financial regulation
European Law Review (2009)
  • Giulia Bertezzolo
Abstract
The article considers how the European Community deals with global standard-setting bodies operating within the financial sector. EC law seems to be strongly influenced by global standards. In order to understand the processes pursuant to which such standards are incorporated in the EC system and to verify whether EC priorities are represented at global level, this analysis highlights the relationships established by EC and global actors dealing with financial regulation. The article concludes that by creating permanent bodies made up of Member States’ national authorities, the European Community has provided the conditions for EC interests to be asserted at global level.
