The Act of 28 April 2020 (the "Act") amends the CCA in order to align it to the requirements of the Shareholder Rights Directive (see the newsletter of 20 April 2020). The Act was published in the Moniteur belge/Belgisch Staatsblad on 6 May 2020.
The Act also introduces a large number of amendments to the CCA based on comments made by legal scholars and practitioners. It is therefore important to consult the amended CCA as soon as it becomes available on the website of the Ministry of Justice and in the meantime to keep a copy of the Act at hand in order to be able to determine what has changed.
