The European Commission published a corrected version of the SFDR RTS with minor template adjustments in the Official Journal on December 27, 2022, just a few days before the Regulation officially came into force. The corrections in the official English version include adjusting the questions’ order for Pre-contractual Disclosures for Art 8 products, the alignment of the icons, the adjustment of the formatting and others.
The Commission also corrected the errors in the other language versions of the Official Journal to align all templates in the respective languages.
For example, in the German Pre-contractual Disclosure for Art 9 products the question “Welche Nachhaltigkeitsindikatoren werden zur Messung der Erreichung des nachhaltigen Investitionsziels dieses Finanzprodukts herangezogen?” was included twice and in the corrected version the question has been replaced by the correct one “Wie werden die Verfahrensweisen einer guten Unternehmensführung der Unternehmen, in die investiert wird, bewertet? cleversoft has noticed this already last summer and added the respective German translation of the missing question.
We have reviewed the relevant changes and will apply them in the templates where necessary. We will shortly publish a newsletter with the relevant changes to our SFDR service, especially for Pre-contractual and Web Disclosures.
