2nd Annual FinTech and Digital Innovation Conference

Common standards help to reduce costs and potentially allow new entrants to easily enter the Single Market. They can also address new challenges presented by developing technologies, such as the risks associated with ICOs recently identified by both the EU and international regulators. These should also take into consideration calls from the industry for regulators to coordinate their message on ICOs. However, there are also downsides to common standards. Standards can inadvertently give preference to some technologies over others hindering their innovation. Where does standard setting make sense for the FinTech sector? How does the EU ensure the standard setting process fosters competition, transparent, open for all participants? The conditions for access have to be fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory. Should we aim for EU or international standards?
