This newsletter provides a status update on the main Dutch and European legislative initiatives in the field of company law over the past year. The coalition agreement has been taken into account. We also look back at certain legislation that entered into force in 2021. Covid-19 and a caretaker government obviously slowed down legislative progress at the national level. However, many legislative initiatives were taken at the European level, which helps to explain the length of this update. A list of legislative initiatives on which no progress was made in 2021 can be found at the end of this newsletter.
