A number of regulatory and non-regulatory instruments or combinations of instruments can be used to achieve the objectives of the intervention. Instruments in the EU can be divided into the following broad categories, although there may be overlaps or combinations (such as the obligation to accept reciprocity recognition of alternative rules and standards): (1) “Hard” legally binding rules; (2) “soft” adjustment; (3) Education and information. In his speech, the author will give examples of the use of this type of instruments on the financial market. Next, he will present the results of research conducted with representatives of administration and business, which analyze the use and effectiveness of such instruments. Different perspectives on market confidence and conclusions from the recently implemented European Union regulations will be presented.
