Legal affairs

Obligations and requirements to provide RegTech-services

At the moment, RegTechs are not subject to specific “RegTech-dedicated” legislation. In some cases, since the RegTech products only support the provision of regulated services, they are even expressly excluded from the scope of the respective legislation (see e.g. ZPS, which excludes from its scope services/activities of technical service providers that support the provision of payment services).

However, an assessment of the legal requirements needs to be conducted in each case based on the specific business model.

Also, not only may RegTechs need to comply with general legislation, incl. data protection regulations or anti-money laundering regulations (if their product concerns AML), in some cases, they will be directly or indirectly regulated by financial regulations laying down rules and conditions under which financial entities may outsource their activities to the third parties (regulated outsourcing).
