On 8 March 2024, the following were published in the Official Journal of the EU:

The Directive and Regulation amend the MiFID II / MiFIR regime to improve access to market data and transparency. In particular the Regulation introduces an EU-wide consolidated tape and new rules that prohibit payment for order flow (PFOF). Member States where the practice of PFOF already exists may allow investment firms under its jurisdiction to be exempt from the prohibition (provided that PFOF is only provided to clients in that Member State). However, the practice must be phased out by 30 June 2026.
