The Regulation No 345/2013 on European Venture Capital Funds (EuVECA) and the Regulation 346/2013 on European Social Entrepreneurship Funds (EuSEF) became applicable on 22 July 2013 [Registry ]. These Regulations provide for a common EU framework for the managers of EuVECA and EuSEF that are registered with the competent authorities, so that they can benefit from the EU passport in order to manage and market funds in the Union with the specific EuSEF and EuVECA labels. ESMA is required to play an active role in building a common supervisory culture by promoting common supervisory approaches and practices. In this regard, the Authority develops Q&As as and when appropriate to elaborate on the provisions of certain EU legislation or ESMA guidelines. The purpose of this document is to promote common supervisory approaches and practices in the application of the EuSEF and EuVECA Regulations. It does this by providing responses to questions posed by the general public and competent authorities in relation to the practical application of these Regulations. The content of this document is aimed at competent authorities under EuSEF and EuVECA Regulations to ensure that in their supervisory activities their actions are converging along the lines of the responses adopted by ESMA. However, the answers are also intended to help EuSEF and EuVECA managers by providing clarity as to the content of the rules of the Regulations, rather than creating an extra layer of requirements.
