The EU is undertaking an extensive program of work to harmonise the European securities market. VPS is participating in this program, and is a signatory to the European Code of Conduct for Clearing and Settlement that was issued in 2006.

The Code of conduct provides guidelines for transparency on pricing and freedom of choice for investors when carrying out cross-border securities trading and settlement. VPS complies fully with the Code of conduct, and publishes an annual report that documents its compliance.

The European central securities depositories have taken the initiative to publish a table and guidance notes to simplify comparison between the prices charged by different central securities depositories.
