Industry Funding Levy and the Prospectus Directive 

The Prospectus (Directive 2003/71/EC) Regulations 2005 (the Prospectus Regulations) provide that fees shall be payable pursuant to Section 33K of the Central Bank Act, 1942 in respect of the performance by the Central Bank of Ireland of its functions under the Prospectus Regulations.

The Central Bank of Ireland has amended the fees charged for the approval of prospectuses and related documents related to non-equity securities under the Prospectus (Directive 2003/71/EC) Regulations 2005. Any prospectus or related document approved on or after 1 May 2015 related to non-equity securities will be subject to the amended fees.

The new prospectus approval fees are set out in the implementing statutory instrument (SI 106 of 2015)[1]
