PRIIPs Risk Category Decision Tree

On 11th July 2016 a technical “Workshop on the implementation of the PRIIPs framework” was held in Brussels with the aim of providing further clarification on the technical standards developed by the European Supervisory Authorities (ESAs). The workshop was hosted by DG Financial Stability, Financial Services and Capital Markets Union (FISMA) of the European Commission, and included representatives from the (ESAs) and National Competent Authorities.

During the workshop, a decision tree was shown to guide the classification of each PRIIP into a risk category; please note that the decision tree is only a guideline and does not intend to cover all options.
