Prospectus Rules
Prospectus Rules (PR)
The Financial Services Authority rules introduced to implement the Prospectus Directive in the UK. Broadly, they require the issue of a prospectus, unless an exemption applies, whenever there is either an offer of transferable securities (transferable security) to the public in the UK or a request for the admission to trading of transferable securities on a regulated market in the UK. They set out the form, content and approval requirements for prospectuses and are contained in the FSA's Prospectus Rules sourcebook.
