Provision of Microcredit in Europe: Commission to Update European Good Code of Conduct


The European Commission (Directorate-General for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion) published a press release informing readers that it is updating the European good code of conduct for microcredit provision. The publication can he found here.

Originally launched in 2011, the code’s aim was to provide a common set of standards relating to management, governance, risk management, reporting and consumer and investor relations for the EU microfinance sector.

The purpose of the update is to reflect market changes and the diversity of the microfinance sector. The updates are expected to be in place over the next 12 months.
