Arab Today, arab today EU reaches compromise on ratings agency rules

Brussels - AFP

The European Commission, European Parliament and European Council have reached compromise on new rules meant to govern credit ratings agencies, EU Internal Market Commissioner Michel Barnier said on Tuesday. \"I welcome the important agreement reached today on additional rules for credit rating agencies which aim to reduce the over-reliance on ratings, eradicate conflicts of interest, and establish a civil liability regime,\" Barnier said in statement. These agencies \"will have to be more transparent when rating sovereign states,\" Barnier added, as well as \"respect timing rules on sovereign ratings and justify the timing of publication of unsolicited ratings of sovereign debt\" in order to avoid destabilising financial markets. The commission hopes the new rules will be adopted by the European Parliament and the 27 leaders making up the European Council by the end of the year. The Commission shall also \"report on the appropriateness of a European credit rating agency and report back to the Council and European Parliament by 2016,\" Barnier said. This new European entity would be meant as an alternative to credit agencies such as Standard & Poor\'s and Moody\'s that have often been blamed as contributing factors to the 2008 financial crisis and the eurozone debt crisis.
