Portugal: Securities-Related Laws

For EU specific regulations, please visit Europe: Securities Related Laws.

In May 2018, the Portuguese Parliament debated cryptocurrency payment regulations, with the aim of adopting a new legal framework for cryptocurrency payment services. The new Portuguese regulatory framework is configured to apply “new rules for accessing payment accounts” in order to avoid unjustified setbacks and ensure that payments are secure. It will also introduce rules on operational risk management, while offering “reporting mechanisms” to service providers and ICO operators. While this is stated in several news sites, the official document and regulation has yet to be released, with an expected date this year.
