The EU Commission has recently proposed amendments to Regulation (EC) No 1060/2009 (the “CRA Regulation”) of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 September 2009 on credit rating agencies (“CRAs”), which include a proposal to require all information necessary for the CRA hired by an issuer to determine or monitor the credit rating of a structured finance instrument to be made available to non-hired CRAs. The stated purposes of the proposal are to reinforce competition between CRAs; to help avoid possible conflicts of interest under the issuer-pays model; to enhance transparency and the quality of ratings; and to promote the issuance of unsolicited ratings . The proposal follows closely the recent amendments to Rule 17g-5 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 in the U.S.
