Article 43 — Changes to a draft prospectus during the approval procedure
- Each version of the draft prospectus submitted after the first draft prospectus shall highlight all changes made to the preceding draft and shall be accompanied by an unmarked draft. Competent authorities shall accept marked extracts of the preceding draft prospectus where only limited changes have been made.
- Where competent authorities, in accordance with Article 45(2) of this Regulation, have notified the issuer, offeror or person asking for admission to trading on a regulated market that the draft prospectus does not meet the standards of completeness, comprehensibility and consistency as referred to in Article 20(4) of Regulation (EU) 2017/1129, the subsequently submitted draft of the prospectus shall be accompanied by an explanation as to how the outstanding issues notified by competent authorities have been addressed.
- Where changes made to a draft prospectus are self-explanatory or clearly address the outstanding issues notified by the competent authority, an indication of where the changes have been made to address the outstanding issues shall be considered sufficient explanation for the purposes of paragraph 2.
